Akshar Patel Top Indian Bowler @ 4/1 - BET NOW
India wrapped up the series with another resounding victory in the third ODI to take an unassailable 3-0 lead and even at odds of 1/2 you wouldn't be backing the opposition to win this fourth ODI.
Instead there's a touch of value in the top Indian batsman market with slow left-armer Akshar Patel a nice price at 4/1 to pick up a few scalps. He was on form in the last match as he helped himself to three Sri Lankan wickets including opposition captain Angelo Mathews while he helped himself to two wickets in the second ODI and two in the first. His main competition for top wicket taker is likely to be Umesh Yadav who opens the bowling and took four wickets in the last match. However, he's likely to waste overs against the better Sri Lankan batsman while Patel will face the middle order so back the youngster at 4/1.
