England Odds-On For Series Win

England are 4/6 to beat India at Headingley on Sunday and wrap up the NatWest Series.

The Three Lions moved into a 3-1 lead after their three wicket win at Old Trafford.

Ladbrokes make Ravi Bopara 1/3 to outscore his Manchester batting partner Stuart Broad following their match-winning stand.

The Nottinghamshire bound paceman is 6/4 to take more wickets than Lancashire's James Anderson, who is 5/4 with the tie available at 5/2.

Having lost eight batsman for less than twenty runs on two occasions in the series, seven on one occasion and four the other, Ladbrokes make three to five the 5/6 favourite for India this time.

Despite not having achieved it so far, Kevin Pietersen is the joint 7/2 favourite to top score for the hosts, with Sachin Tendulkar the 3/1 jolly for the tourists.
