England Need Focus

Live on Skysports 1: Sun 23.30: England are 4/11 to see the series out 2-1 or 3-1 and the Aussies are 13/5 to win (William Hill).

The famous urn is coming home with England after their emphatic Fourth Ashes Test success in Melbourne gave them a 2-1 series lead but the squad will be desperate to ensure that they avoid defeat in the final match in Sydney, so they can actually win the series, rather than just draw it.

William Hill make the tourists 4/11 to get the draw or the victory they need but after events at the MCG many might fancy England at 6/4 (bet365) to finish on a high by beating the beleaguered Aussies, Betfred’s 13/5 outsiders.

The Baggy Greens however, know that they can’t regain the Ashes but they’re also aware that all is not lost and they’ll be determined to get a result while England might take their eye off the ball, so the outright betting is a touch risky.

Instead, there’s 9/4 for Graeme Swann to be England’s best Fifth Test bowler or alternatively, after Andrew Strauss’ men took ten first innings wickets in Melbourne via catches, a strong case can be made for 888Sport’s even money marked against the first dismissal in Sydney coming by the same method.

Clarke steps in as captain for the injured Ponting and the Aussies should not be ruled out here, despite a poor showing at the MCG, England need to be careful.
