England’s Ashes Chances turn to Dust
By James Mc
Following the England cricket team’s disastrous start to the Ashes tour in Australia, online bookmaker and casino operator William Hill has priced the tourists at 80/1 to repeat the 2-1 series victory they achieved so dramatically last summer.

The distant odds reflects the similar start to last year’s Ashes series when Australia took the first test comfortably but were then pegged back by a resurgent England side who eventually triumphed 2-1. And whilst England are a long shot to repeat that feat, they remain slightly more comfortable if not overwhelming outsiders to retain their title at 7/1, with a 12/1 price to win the series outright.

Australia on the other hand are strong favourites following their comprehensive victory at the ‘Gabba with William Hill offering 1/16 on them regaining the Ashes with a drawn series at 12/1.

The Aussies are already early favourites for the second test at 1/3 with England out at 6/1 and a draw at 7/2. Australia are odds on at 4/6 to regain the Ashes by winning the first three tests and a mere 2/1 to win the series via a 5-0 whitewash.

Other lines available include top batsman with Ricky Ponting a 5/6 favourite, followed by Justin Langer at 3/1 and Kevin Pietersen at 9/1. Shane Warne is evens to end up series top wicket taker while William Hill makes Glen McGrath 5/2 and England captain Andrew Flintoff an 8/1 outsider.
