For a moment, it looked as if the pitch was no friend to either side. However, England are always capable of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Their collapse in the 2nd innings matched their first innings effort. It was a disaster and made a bet on India to win the 4th Test at Bet365 a no-brainer. Online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 are already giving them short odds. Although, after England’s performance in Ahmedabad, they’re never going to be short enough.
“Had we got 250 on that wicket it would have been a really good score.” Said England Captain Joe Root after his team fell to a humiliating defeat. He claimed the loss would not “define them as a team” but some of his statements about it define him as delusional. 250? Joe you barely managed triple figures the first time out, and the second time not even that. No wonder most people will bet on India to win the 4th Test. Virat Kohli isn’t living in some insane dreamland.
“We’ll come back stronger.” Promised Root, a man at the bottom of a hole who has to claim the only way is up. So, he seems a mite optimistic. And that’s being kind. “We have some fine batters who are capable of making big scores.” He continued. Looking at the scorecard, those taking advantage of UK gambling laws might wonder where they were during the match…..and then bet on India to win the 4th Test. So, the odds on India are now 2/5 at Bet365. Snap them up!
England Collapse To Humiliating Defeat In India
“We wanted to give our seamers, which we feel is a big strength of ours, a chance to exploit those conditions.” Joe Root explained knowing full well it would sound ridiculous. “Unfortunately it was a slight misread.” So that’s a slight misread? Jofra Archer was the only pace man to take a wicket for England. Anderson and Broad bowled 19 overs to no effect. That’s shocking and explains why the odds on England are 4/1 and a bet on India to win the 4th Test is a good idea.
Odds On The 4th Test
- Draw – 11/2
- England – 4/1
- India – 2/5

“Unfortunately [pace bowlers] didn’t have the impact we anticipated.” Said Joe trying out for the British Olympic Understatement Squad. Of course, that doesn’t explain a Test side getting just 81 in their second innings. Nothing does. It was appalling. So, if you want a good bet on sports in the UK, just bet on India to win the 4th Test. Their batting may have lacked a certain something at times in this match too, but at least they won. So you can bet on Virat Kohli leaning on that.

“The result went our way.” Agreed Virat. “But the quality of batting wasn’t at all up to the standard by both teams.” Indeed. No one would normally bet on Test cricket games only lasting two days. Those putting a bet on India to win the 4th Test might want to. It could happen again. “Let’s not hide away from the fact we’ve been outplayed again.” Said Joe Root who will spend much of his time now doing just that. “We have to accept that.” So that guarantees he won’t.
“Our bowlers were much more effective and that’s why we got the result.”

So, of course, after all this, another wager beckons. Alongside a bet on India to win the 4th Test you could probably bet on the next England Test captain too. Joe may have taken 5 for 8, but leading a side to this bad a loss sticks. The selectors are fickle at the best of times. They may notice just how many people bet on India to win the 4th Test. Just take one look at the prices on offer at online betting sites in the UK like Bet365 and say it really isn’t time for a change.
We take a look at why a bet on India to win the 4th Test is almost obligatory after England collapse to a humiliating defeat.
