Leading online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au thinks the Man of the Series award for Australia’s Test series against India is down to three candidates – all Aussies of course.
Skipper Michael Clarke is the $2.60 favourite but hot on his heels are quick bowlers Peter Siddle ($2.80) and Ben Hilfenhaus ($3.00) while Ricky Ponting is next at $11.
“Pup has been absolutely phenomenal with the bat this series and his captaincy has been almost faultless so that sees him start as favourite,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.
“In saying that, both Siddle and Hilfenhaus have shredded the Indian batting line-up this series so they are close behind Clarke in the market while Punter isn’t out of the reckoning.”
Every other player from Australia and all of the Indian team are a $51 chance.
“Plenty of punters will think $51 for VVS Laxman to win it is a bit generous,” Hawes added.
