Cricket Betting: Draw Backed As Bookies Hope For Thriller
 

The draw has again been well backed ahead of the second test according to Ladbrokes.

A stalemate represents 75% of the money taken for the match so far at 7/4 as punters shun India at 3/1 and the hosts at 11/10.

The bookies are also hopeful of another thriller which was largely responsible for in-play turnover well above expectation.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "We'd love another roller coaster. When all three results look possible it's music to in-play backer's ears."

he added: "The draw is all the rage again but we fancy another result."
