Anyone know the quickest place for live scores for the vitality blast? I was using espncric last night but it seemed to lag behind by a few balls at times

Bet 365 is excellent

Test cricket is back today. Hurrah! Sadly, can't see it being too competitive this week, though.

Ireland might have a slight chance in 20 or even 50 overs cricket, but this is the first time they've faced a major Test nation in the long form of the game.

At 1.14, you could even say England are outstanding value - despite the loss of their most destructive bowling. I would expect them to win this match 19 times out of 20.

On the subject of value, I really like Northants at 2.7 tonight in the T-20 Blast. It's close on 11 weeks since Notts last won a game and their batting looked totally inept in their opening Blast match last week. And Northants are one of the great over-achievers in this form of the game.b

T20 seems to be a good sport to trade, I have just laid £2000 at 1.01 on Middlesex, got out backing them at 1.06 with a nice profit

Good stuff James. Low laying in limited overs cricket in major competitions is a goldmine. I wouldn't try it in the Tamil Nadu T-20 League though; their lower order batting is dismal!

@gary-brown doubt it if you did it with no reason behind it, early wicket or two would hurt

As I don't know what to do I left this one.
I was planning on backing the batting team and trading out after a couple of overs but I didn't in the end.

Does this strategy work quite well in these games Martin?

@martin-futter How's the liquidity in that T20 series?

Not as high at IPL or Big Bash but still plenty high enough to trade - for the live matches on TV anyway.

Really liking the lay of the draw at around 2.5 in the Women's Test Match starting at Taunton today.

England have to win to have any chance of regaining the Ashes, while Australia simply are not the sort of side to settle for a stalemate - and are, in my opinion, the vastly superior side at the current time.

The draw is so short because of the weather forecast, but it looks as though we'll have a pretty clear day at Taunton today and I will be surprised if it doesn't drift from its current position during the course of the day.

Rain is likely tomorrow and Saturday, but who knows with the British weather? It will certainly be prudent to keep an eye on the radar during the course of this match as I reckon we'll get some very good swings on the draw price.

While the amount of money matched won't be anywhere near as high as in a men's Test Match, it is being shown live on Sky and covered in full on Radio Five Live Extra, so it should still be easily tradeable.

In the opening T20 Blast matches I quite like the chances of all three outsiders - Glamorgan (2.5), Essex (2.32) and Worcestershire (2.3). At this stage of the season, they're all pretty much 50-50 chances I reckon, so there could be a bit of value in all three.

However, I have to admit it will all be a bit of a lottery to begin with as it's very difficult to judge T20 chances by form in the County Championship.
