Australia firm favourites to retain Ashes

By Online Editorial   

Cricket

England now find themselves in the customary position of Ashes underdogs following a comprehensive innings defeat in the fourth Test today.

Two consecutive middle order failures condemned Andrew Strauss’ men to the loss which leaves the series level at 1-1 with one Test to play.

And Australia’s crushing superiority at Headingley leaves them favourites to earn a win at The Oval.

That would seal a remarkable come-from-behind series victory for the Aussies who have been matched at a high of 9.5 on Betfair following defeat at Lord’s.

England are now out to 9/2 in the same market having traded at a low of 13/20 post-Lord’s.

A drawn series can be backed at 73/50.
