2nd Test: Money For The Draw As Forecast Looks Bleak

William Hill have trimmed the price of the second test ending in a draw to 7/4 from 9/4 after a steady run of cash. Meanwhile Ben Stokes is the man everyone wants to back and he is 9/2 to score a hundred in the match and 16/1 to be named man of the match.

 

“We saw a decent amount of cash for England on Tuesday but the latest forecast is not great and the draw is the favoured bet today,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
