Cricket Live Betting: Can India Tie Series Against England?Published August 15, 2014 by Amir G
Bet live on cricket as England and India meet for the fifth Test match today at 11am UK time.
Test cricket action is on today as England and India meet in the fifth and final Test at London's Kennington Oval ground at 11am local time. The match last Thursday in Manchester's Old Trafford saw the Indians broken after England won by an innings and 54 runs. This win was preceded by another victory at Southampton where the English won by 266 runs. This led England to lead 2-1 currently in the five match series.
Series Can Still be Tied
Morale might be an issue for India today at the Oval, considering their dismal performance at the fourth test. Today Captain Singh Dhoni and his men fight to save the series: If they lose, the Indians will complete a fifth straight series loss away from the subcontinent. India's batsmen struggled against England's rookie off-spinner Moeen Ali who has become a sort of sensation in England itself. A boost for India will be the attendance of medium-pacer Ishant Sharma who was injured but is now deemed fit again.
England Keeping Squad
England will play with the same squad at the Oval. It's hard to see the English letting the series slip at home when they're standing on a 2-1 advantage today in the fifth Test. Speaking ahead of today's deciding match, England's young batsman Joe Root said his team does not take India lightly. "We know they`re going to come very hard at us, and we`ll have to make sure we've got all bases covered and not be caught off guard."
