Bookies.com give punters four fantastic bets to take ahead of the second of three matches in Pakistan's adopted home the UAE
England will go at Pakistan again for the second Test in Dubai after their agonising narrow miss last time out, and ahead of the match Bookies.com give punters four top tips to take…
Judging by the first Test in Abu Dhabi, these flat wickets in the UAE offer barely nothing at all for bowlers, certainly in the opening days, meaning that is is batting heaven.
We could witness big scores again, after England captain Alastair Cook and Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik’s double centuries, so another draw is a great shout.
BETTING TIP: Pakistan and England draw @ 5/2 with Sky Bet
Alastair Cook top England batsman (1st innings)
As stated above Cook is back in form after his fabulous knock of 263, which became the longest ever Test innings for an Englishman and third out of anyone in history.
The England skipper loves to lead form the front, and these pitches certainly suit the Essex opener, so back him to top score in his first innings once more.
BETTING TIP: Cook top England batsman (1st inns) @ 10/3 with Coral
Younis Khan top Pakistan batsman (1st innings)
Another recent record-breaker features in our top tips, as new all-time Pakistan Test run scorer Younis got the required 19 needed in the first innings last time out.
Malik’s double century was a freak innings by his usual standards, and veteran Younis will be looking to lead the way this time.
BETTING TIP: Younis top Pakistan batsman (1st inns) @ 4/1 with BetFred
Series score 0-0
With a draw on the cards again for this match, another tied result is highly possible for the third and final Test starting on November 1st.
A 0-0 series scoreline is certainly possible, as it has happened twice before when England travelled to face Pakistan in tests.
BETTING TIP: 0-0 series score @ 12/1 with Paddy Power
