England vs Pakistan Test Match Betting Update

Things are definitely looking to be moving in England’s favour despite a frustrating day of action against the likes of Pakistan as the English side were left wanting just a bit more time after bad light stopped play on the second day’s action at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. The tourists are sitting at 223-9 with Babar Alum frustrating England with a stand of 47 prior to being bowled out. 



Weather has been a factor in this one with the English attack seeing their opportunities blunted and a bit more pressure developing for the batsmen to be able to put together some quickfire runs on a pitch that seems to be getting trickier to play on by the day. 

The draw is definitely looking like the most obvious result here as the test is set to enter its third day tomorrow with England looking likely to finish the Pakistanis up early on during their first few overs tomorrow as they look to eliminate the tail and take the field to bat as soon as possible. 

To actually get the result here, England will be looking at a price of around 5/2 and that’s likely to tempt a few punters who will be basing their bet on England’s likelihood to put up a full day of batting over 80 overs on Saturday and then being able to bowl Pakistan out cheaply in their second innings over a deteriorating pitch on day four. If they can put up around 250 runs quickly and then set Pakistan up at the right time - their odds could shorten considerably. 

For the tourists to pull off an unlikely victory, the bookmakers have them floated around a price of 8/1 at the time of this writing and that listing will skyrocket if England can tick up the runs quickly and not lose a bunch of early wickets on day three.
