England vs India 5th Test Betting Tips 10/09/2021

Teams Status

England

England head into the final Test trailing 2-1 and facing the prospect of their second Test series defeat to India this year, having been thrashed 3-1 on their tour of subcontinent earlier.

The English batting has probably not looked this weak and frail in some time, with the sole exception, of course, being their in-form captain Joe Root.

In the ongoing ICC World Test Championship 2021-23, of which this Test series is also a part, Root tops the scoring chart with a staggering 564 runs at an average of 94 runs. Next English batsman on the list is Jonny Bairstow, who has just 184 runs at an average of 26.28, which should explain why England are down 2-1 at home.

Their quest to level up the series has been somewhat strengthened by the return of Jos Buttler, who had missed the last match to attend the birth of his child. It means one of Jonny Bairstow and Ollie Pope will have to make way.

Captain Root has also strongly indicated that allrounder Moeen Ali would retain his place in the side despite a very ordinary performance in the fourth Test defeat.

India

India sit pretty on a 2-1 lead but also aware of the fact that things can change pretty quickly even in a Test match in England. Thus, they cannot afford to relax in the final Test.

They won the last Test on the basis of their big score (466) in the second innings when a Rohit Sharma century up top set the tone before the tail swelled up the score.

Shardul Thakur also played a big role, thanks to his half centuries in both the innings.

Along with the highest score of the match, India also made the lowest, with just 191 in their opening innings so that should be in the back of their mind.

Ajinkya Rahane failed in both the innings of the last Test but his place in the side should still not be in danger.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Match to end in Draw at 2.235

It’s a simple calculation. India are the better side of the two, with both their batsmen and bowlers performing admirably. However, this being a crucial Test, we expect England to slightly raise their game but it still wouldn’t be enough to get them the victory. We expect the match to go down the wire but then India would somehow hand on for a Draw. The play can be found at MelBet.

Tip: Virat Kohli Will Score (50) Runs – Yes @ 1.832

We have not seen the best of Virat Kohli on this tour of England. There have not been any centuries, with his highest individual score being a mere 55. He is getting half centuries though, or comes close to getting there every time he pads up, which is why we back him to score at least 50 in the final Test. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Conclusion

Over the course of the first four Tests we have found out that India are a better side than England, and it should stay consistent through the final Test as well.
