Australia vs England – Rampant Aussies can confirm series victory

| 25.01.2011

England may have crushed the Australian Test team at Adelaide during the Ashes, but Michael Clarke’s side are out for revenge in the fourth one-day international that could confirm the series victory.

Australia have been cut into 7/1 from 12/1 to whitewash England following their third ODI victory in Sydney, and the 4/5 for Australia to win and continue their dominance over an England team that doesn’t know its strongest side looks incredible value.

England are an incredibly short 1/1 to win considering they have lost Graeme Swann and Tim Bresnan to injury, but Kevin Pietersen and James Anderson should return to the squad.

Andy Flower is still wiping the egg off his face after Matt Prior went for a second consecutive duck following his recall to the ODI team, and the wicket-keeper turned one-day opener is as big as 5/1 to be England’s top scorer.

England recorded their highest ever one-day score at Adelaide – 302 against Sri Lanka in 1998 – but still managed to lose and England have only managed one win against Australia in five ODIs at the Adelaide Oval.

Brad Haddin and David Hussey were the stars for Australia in Sydney as the runs continue to be shared around Australia’s top order, but captain Michael Clarke is yet to notch a big innings and this could be the occasion – Clarke is 5/1 to be Australia’s top runscorer.

Anderson’s return to the England attack will certainly add some experience to a novice line-up, but Anderson will struggle to reverse England’s fortunes on his own and the in-form Australian top-order can take apart England’s attack once again.

It’s 5/6 that the fall of the first Australian wicket is over 28.5 runs and Australia are 11/10 to record the highest score after the first over.

A £25 stake on Australia winning the series 7-0 would return £200. New customers can sign up here for a free bet worth £25.
