Value Bets for India Bet
With Root returning to the side after the birth of his second child, he will be keen to add strength to a wobbly England batting line up and make sure England get back to scoring big runs at home.
In the last game, Shai Hope missed out in both innings and will be raring to go back to the cricket field and score more runs to show the world his mettle.
Anderson lacked the bite he is associated with, especially in English conditions and will be keen to exploit the conditions at old Trafford to the optimum to make sure England level the series.
SAFE BOOKMAKER BETS
England Fall of 1st Wicket (1st Inns) - Under 27.5
With Zak Crawley and Rory failing to put up a stand in both innings, expect them to be vulnerable yet again especially against a rampaging Shanon Gabriel.
Kraigg Brathwaite Total Runs (1st Inns) - Over 22.5
Kraigg Brathwaite was one of the key architects in West Indies taking a lead in the first innings and once again will be the key as the visitors will look to seal a historic series win.
Zak Crawley Total Runs (1st Inns) - Over 31.5
Crawley will be the key once again as he scored a vital 70 in the second innings at Southampton and will look to retain his place in the side for this game as well as for the rest of the series.
