England are 11/8 with Ladbrokes to win the fourth and final test against India.

In keeping with this series the draw has been well backed and India are 5/1 outsiders to salvage something from the series. England are 1/12 to still be the number one test ranked side when they next take to the field in January against Pakistan in the UAE early next year (6/1 they aren't).

Every single England player will be available at an industry-top price in the top runscorer market which is currently led by Alastair Cook at 7/2. Pietersen and Strauss are the joint 4/1 second favourites and Rahul Dravid is the shortest priced Indian at 7/2.

A 4-0 whitewash was originally on offer at 25/1 at the start of the series having been clipped in from 33/1.

Alex Donohue, cricket betting expert of Ladbrokes said: "In every game of the series we've laid the draw due to mixed weather forecasts. The final test is no different and as usual we're cheering the Indians for a shock victory."

He added: "We saw bits and pieces for the whitewash but mainly patriotic £10 and £20 bets."
