    It does. That and Watson's disinclination to bowl anymore appears to have polished Henriques' credentials.

    Personally I'd like to see more posts from flogcity comparing international cricket to what he does in 8th grade park cricket on matting.

    I reckon international cricketers should warm up by the captain getting the bat and everyone standing around him I'm a half moon shape while he hits catches.

    India to get bowled out for 220 and Australia to smash 300 in 50 overs and India to be bowled out for a 100.

    It must have been the action that drove that number up....were they getting massive money on India early on that they had to make the Aussie bet so enticing?

    I wish I could gamble from the US .
    Most of the massive money on India is bet illegally isn't it?

    Those odds were on Betfair exchange, not the bookies (legal or illegal) so hardly any would have been from India.

    Punters betting on Indian test matches have always over-estimated the Indian batting when making odds, but it is even more extreme now because India don't have Dravid and VVS and Sehwag sucks, but the odds are the same as if it was 2010.

    This, known as the 'circle warm up', practiced by middle age lower grade captains with little else to do with their time.

    If Kohli is ever Captain he'll have no trouble doing this.

    You need to read Bookie Gambler Fixer Spy. Betfair is the Indian bookies' friend.

    Rubbish. All gambling on cricket can be traced back to India.

    Bloke the other week had a bet he could hit more sixes than a mate in his side at our club, got on with a bookie in India.

    Well all betting originating from India would be illegal. But I don't see how that would affect legal sites. If you tried to make a bet with an illegal bookie when placing a bet, I can understand the lines being skewed.
