Jos Buttler makes his England debut in the 3rd Test against India tomorrow (Sunday 27th July), and England will be desperately hoping he will hit the ground running as they are already 1-0 down in this 5 match series.
If you think Buttler can make an immediate impact, he is a best price of 12/1 with (bet365 who have a £200.00 Welcome Bonus for new customers) to be top scorer in the 1st innings of the 3rd Test match.
The top 6 batsmen will be the same for this Test match, and of the those batsmen, Ian Bell, Alastair Cook, Gary Ballance and Joe Root are all 4/1 to be top scorer. Sam Robson is 9/2 and Moeen Ali is 7/1.
Of those players, only Balance, Root and Ali have shown any real form with the bat, with Cook, Robson and Bell all struggling badly. If the top 6 fail again, then there is every possibility that Buttler could top score. But given the way things have been going for Alastair Cook and England lately, I wouldn’t be surprised to see James Anderson top score with the bat, it really has got to the stage where anything can happen.
As well as this offer on Buttler, Betfair are also offering all new customers 9/1 on England winning the 3rd Test. This is a new customers only offer, and the maximum bet is £10.00. More information to follow in next blog post………….
