After Steven O’Keefe and Steve Smith led Australia to a massive victory in the first match should you really be backing the favored Indians to take a win in the second or is going for a draw the best bet on test cricket you can make as these two square off against each other this weekend?
1st Test India/Aus
• Pune, India
• Aus – 260 & 285
• India – 105 & 107
• Smith – 109
• O’Keefe – 6-35
• Aus win by 333 runs
When the England test cricket side returned to the UK from their tour of India this winter it was clear to everyone that they’d significantly and disappointingly under-performed. Their captain stood down, possibly under the weight of the familiar arse he’d just been handed by the Indians, and the selectors now beginning to worry about the Ashes next winter in Australia. Not least because unlike England Australia are actually worthy of a bet on test cricket, something they’ve already proved; In India.
If you like to bet on sports in India, or just bet on test cricket, you’re probably already aware of the somewhat surprisingly massive victory they pulled off against the Indian test cricket side as the pair clashed in Pune last week, the comparisons with England’s failure all too obvious. Renshaw opened steady and with Marsh and Wade going cheaply it was left to Starc to put on enough to bring them up to 260 all out, a total that India shouldn’t have found difficult, but seemed to struggle all but instantly.

2nd Test India/Aus
• Bangalore, India
• Saturday, 4th Mar.
• India – 10/11
• Australia – 11/4
• Draw – 13/5
Vijay went for just 10 and whilst Rahul put on 64 from the rest of the team only Rahane managed to get into double figures with a measly 13, the massive crowd watching the home side plummet from 94/4 to just 105 all out. It was a disaster, not least for all those fans of placing a bet on test cricket who’d just watched what should have been a safe bet go down the tubes on the end of O’Keefe deliveries. The second innings began by handing India hope, and then snatching it away again really quite quickly.
Warner had gone for just 10, Marsh was out lbw for no runs after 21 balls, and perhaps those who had sided with India when placing their bet on test cricket began to see hope on the horizon, but this was quickly chased away by Smith who stood firm to get a marvelous 109 around which the side built up 285 and pretty much put the game out of reach. Any Indian gambling news coverage of the final innings would see their side pull off a stunning recovery was, alas, just kidding themselves.
Wager On An Indian Victory Against Australia At Bet365
Vijay opened, managed 20 minutes and 2 runs, and was then out, Rahul went cheaply and whilst Pujara put on a show he was the only one who even seemed comfortable and the Indian test side collapsed like a cheap tent on fire till they were all out for 107, Australia taking victory by a massive 333 runs, a performance England could only dream of managing. As you might imagine this has shifted the odds on the second test in Bangalore on Saturday making this a very tricky bet on test cricket at Bet365 .
Will India recover their composure? Certainly you’d think this loss would galvanize into a little more focus this time around, but whilst the bookies are giving them a scant 10/11 with the visitors on 11/4 to take another win, it’s those 13/5 odds on a draw that grab the attention as possibly being the best bet on test cricket in India this weekend and it will be well worthwhile taking advantage of Indian gambling laws to put on a small sum at Bet365 that Australia’s first win was not the start of a glorious run at next winter’s Ashes campaign.
