Alastair Cook has torn into India's bowling attack during the third Test and William Hill make him the 2/1 favourite to win this year's ICC Cricketer of the Year.
The top of the betting for the premier award in cricket is dominated by English cricketers with Graeme Swann and Jonathan Trott both offered at 6/1. James Anderson is 14/1 while Strauss is 16/1, Ian Bell and Chris Tremlett are 20/1 and Stuart Broad 25/1.
Alastair Cook is the 11/8 favourite with Ladbrokes to become the first England cricketer to reach 23 test centuries after notching his nineteenth ton at Edgbaston.
With a number of the current side gaining rapidly on the England record of 22 hundreds, Ladbrokes have opened a book on who will become first to break the mark. Andrew Strauss, who has also scored nineteen tons, is 2/1 to be first to reach the tally, with Kevin Pietersen (18 centuries) priced at 9/4, and Ian Bell (15 centuries) the outsider at 16/1.
William Hill make England 4/6 to win the Test by an innings, 11/10 to fail to do so. England are now 1/6 to win the match for which the draw is 7/2 and an Indian win 50/1. England are now 5/4 to win the Series 4-0.
Hills are offering 4/1 that Cook will complete a triple century, 7/4 that Morgan makes a ton.
England are 3/10 with bet365 to win the third Test at Edgbaston.
bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth said "Just like Lord's and Trent Bridge we're out to swerve the draw and the first days play has given us plenty of hope of doing just that."
William Hill have seen a surprising amount of support for India ahead of the third test at Edgbaston. The visitors are 4/1 at Hills and have been the subject of a number of four figure bets, while England are virtually friendless at the moment attracting a biggest bet of £450 at 13/10. The draw is also proving relatively popular at 11/8 having been cut from 15/8 earlier on in the week.
bet365 have again been forced to cut their price on the 3rd Test between England and India ending in a draw.
bet365 cricket betting spokesman Steve Freeth said :"Punters have now taken the 6/4 and weâ€™ll be happy if Edgbaston lives up to its reputation as a results pitch."
Lancashire defeated Sussex late on Monday night to become the final side to qualify for the T20 finals day. Hills make Somerset the 15/8 favourites to win the T20 on August 27th, while Hampshire are 2/1. Lancashire are 3/1 and Leicestershire are 4/1.
England are 6/5 favourites with Paddy Power for victory in the Third Test against India tomorrow and wrap up the series - and status as the worldâ€™s number one Test team.
Despite India's strong batting line-up their injury-ravaged bowling attack could struggle to hold back the dominant England batsmen and the tourists are 7/2 to fight back with a win, the draw being 11/8.
England are the 6/5 favourites to defeat India in the third test which starts on Wednesday but despite this, William Hill punters are staying away from the home side, instead lumping on India at 7/2. One London punter has staked £2,000 on MS Dhoniâ€™s men and that is only the crest of the iceberg with an Indian victory costing Hills a five figure sum.
England are now just 1/6 to become the top ranked test side in the world according to Ladbrokes.
Following their second victory against the tourists they are slashed to 1/100 to win the series with the draw the only other option for India at 16/1.
Sachin Tendulkar is 8/11 not to get his 100th International century during the current Test series and bet365 have chalked up 33/1 about a hat-trick in the 3rd Test after Englandâ€™s comprehensive victory over India at Trent Bridge.
bet365 cricket betting spokesman Steve Freeth said: "We saw money for the draw when it drifted out to 21/10 and India were well supported in-play after their flying start on Friday, so an England victory is a decent result for us."
Much has been made of the controversy surrounding Ian Bell at Trent Bridge on Sunday and bet365 have reacted by going 20/1 that he is run out during the 3rd Test.
bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth said: "Something tells us that Ian Bell will be a bit wiser between the wickets at Edgbaston."
The draw is now a 21/10 poke with bet365 as England and India prepare to face each other in the 2nd Test at Trent Bridge on Friday.
On the latest cricket betting odds, bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth said: "A good weather report and a ground renowned for producing a result has seen the draw drift from 13/8 out to 21/10."
England have been trimmed from 11/10 to even money to win the second test according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies report a reverse in punter sentiment in the absence of India bowler Zaheer Khan and it's the home side who are now backed following the gamble on the draw earlier in the week.
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.
