I’m still fascinated by why punters love to back the draw so much. Despite the crappy weather India couldn’t be anymore in control of this test and will most likely only require two days max to bowl SA out twice. On a side note I’m off to Shanghai in the morning has anyone who has been there ever been able to access Betfair via their VPN, or have they tried and it’s not worked? Cheers.

India return to Test action early tomorrow and although their price of 1.54 may not look too attractive at first sight, I reckon it'll be money in the bank.

While there's been plenty of unseasonal rain about on the Sub-Continent, the forecast for Visak looks set fair, and against a thoroughly dispirited South African side I can only see one result.

The pitch is expected to be a slow turner - the very last thing the Proteas want - and there could be plenty of turn on day one. That will be music to the ears of Ashwin and Jadeja.

And if you want an even more certain outcome, a lay of SA at around 8 will take any rain out of the equation. India have lost only one of their last 29 home Test matches and I'll be astonished if Du Plessis's men put a dent in that proud record.

Just a heads up guys if you don’t know. Sony Max channel 715 on Sky has the Pakistan v Sri Lanka match live. At the moment Pakistan trading at 1.10 and SL around 11.50, 33 overs into the Pakistan innings.

@nathan-bennett wow well there you go then!

Level 102

was speaking with @Richard-Futter this week and he was talking about how often teams trade very short with plenty of game time left to be played. there is very often some kind of bounceback towards the underdog in these situations, obviously something we have talked about before but thought it was worth reminding everyone, think cricket is the best sport for this happening fairly consistently!

@simon-miller
Think I’ll try and see what happens

Level 10

Barbados was at 300 last night after 6/7 wicket I think but after a couple of good overs came back down to 180. If a low stake was put on. I wonder if I'll be matched?

Level 62

Noticed that it a team in T20 is batting so well that the opposition drifts to 80-90 that all it takes is a wicket or 2 to get that other team to come in to between 30-60. Well worth a small back bet in these circumstances I think.

14 runs scored and Aussies almost in to 4 - totally bonkers!

Had a lay at 240 and 250 at beginning of the day was looking good at one point. But sadly Wade ruined that with his good showing. Still a profit for the series but only just.

Level 62

ok tiny back draw out at lunch or copping it sweet if wickets

removed my red free roll now on the aussie lay with these two at the crease cheers @Richard-Futter lay @6 no sweat

Level 102

@richard-futter cheers for that mate learning something new every day appreciate it.

@james-woodroffe I like a 'drip laying' strategy under these circumstances... laying in relatively small amounts as the price drops, but I did put the main amount in at 6 on this occasion as early wickets looked a probability.
