India stormed to victory on the final day of the second Test at Lord’s to go 1-0 up in the series, and it looks a long way back for England from here.
- India to win 2.10
- KL Rahul to score over 25.5 runs in the first innings 1.83
- Joe Root to be England’s top batsman in the first innings 3.25
- Ollie Robinson to be England’s top bowler in the first innings 3.25
India to win 2.10
Stuart Broad and Mark Wood have since been ruled out through injury, while both Dom Sibley and Zak Crawley have been sent back to their counties for time away from the international set-up.
This India team are relentless in all aspects of the game, and look a great bet to secure a second successive win against the weakened hosts.
KL Rahul to score over 25.5 runs in the first innings 1.83
Rahul has been impressive in both Tests to date, following up an 84 at Trent Bridge with his first century for nearly three years at Lord’s.
He has passed this mark in three of his four innings in this series.
Joe Root to be England’s top batsman in the first innings 3.25
England are relying more on Root than ever before, with the skipper hitting two centuries and one 50 during the series so far.
His recent form at Headingley is strong, with three half-centuries in his last four Test innings on his home ground, so he looks to be worth backing again.
Ollie Robinson to be England’s top bowler in the first innings 3.25
After making his Test debut just two months ago, Robinson looks set for a frontline role at Headingley with the England bowling attack ravaged by injury.
He has taken nine wickets in the series, with seven of those coming in the first innings, including his first five-wicket haul at Trent Bridge.
