Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has moved the Aussies’ price out ever so slightly from $1.40 to $1.42 while bringing India in from $3.00 to $2.90.

Nearly half the money wagered on Australia’s highest runscorer has gone on David Warner, who’s the $4.50 second favourite behind Steve Smith ($3.75).

Mitchell Starc is easily the most popular in the most wickets category at $3.00 with 60% of all money on the left-arm quick.

“Punters have identified this as a real danger game for Australia. There’s been more money for the Aussies over the past 24 hours but there’s more interest in the Indians overall,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
