England have drifted out from 1/2 to 4/6 following the news that James Anderson will be rested for the 3rd and final test of the series.

The West Indies are 8/1 with the return of the British summer ensuring the draw is just 7/4. In Anderson's absence Stuart Broad is the 9/4 favourite to be top wicket taker with Bresnan 5/2 and Steve Finn 11/4. Andrew Strauss is 7/2 to be top batsman.
 
"There can be no doubt that Anderson will be missed but his likely replacement Steven Finn, could walk in to almost another other test side in the world," said Hill’s cricket betting spokesman Rupert Adams.
