The combination of news about the wicket and a change in the English weather has seen India’s odds drift from 2.00, to 3.60.
New Zealand’s odds have also drifted from 2.30 to 3.00 in the past week.
The draw has shortened substantially. Having originally been 6.00, it is now right into 2.10.
To sum up, while both nation’s odds have drifted, India’s have drifted more than New Zealand’s.
This is probably down to the fact that the Kiwis have just beaten England, and look in good form.
And as well as that, New Zealand’s bowlers are regarded as more effective in swinging conditions, with the likes of Trent Boult and Tim Southee masters of their craft.

- New Zealand – To Follow
India appear to have shortened their batting line up in an attempt to cover all bases in their bowling line up.
In English conditions, it’s not normally good practise to pick two spinners, and that’s exactly what India have done.
Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja are top class performers, but I’m not certain they are both needed in England. Their combined presence does make up for the lack of a specialist sixth batsman though.
On a positive note for India, I believe the inclusion of Ishant Sharma to be a shrewd one. There was talk that the veteran bowler might miss out, but in the end he made the starting XI.
If any cricketer in the combined squads of both nations knows English conditions well, it’s Sharma.
