Stuttering England narrow favourites for Trent Bridge

| 05.07.2011

England are narrow 4/5 favourites with Ladbrokes to win the fourth ODI at Trent Bridge tomorrow and bounce back from a disappointing performance at Lord’s.

Jonathan Trott and captain Alastair Cook are 7/2 joint favourites to top-score for England, while Graeme Swann is 5/2 favourite to be leading wicket taker at his home ground.

With the hosts needing to win both remaining matches Sri Lanka are 2/5 favourites to win the series, with a 3-2 win for the tourists the most likely scoreline, according to the bookies (10/11).

David Williams of Ladbrokes said: “England have been underwhelming so far in the ODIs but we think they can turn the corner in Nottingham.
