Bookies Can't Split India And England For NatWest Series

Bookies can't split England and India going ahead of the deciding one day international following the tourist's pulsating victory at the Oval.

The two sides are level on three wins apiece with all to play for at Lord's after Robin Uthappa saw Rahul Dravid's men home in Kennington.

And Ladbrokes reckon they're both now 5/6 to take the series.

Spokesman Robin Hutchison said: "Anyone who can predict who is going to win at Lord's on Saturday is a braver man than most."

Ladbrokes laid bets of £80,000 at 4/7 and £30,000 at 8/15 on the Indians during the course of the game.

Hutchison added: "England would have been a massive winner but our odds compilers managed to dodge a bullet with some very skilful handling of the in play markets."
