Live on Skysports 2: Thu 00.00: William Hill make Australia 5/6 to win the 1st Test against New Zealand but must watch Jesse Ryder.
Australia edged out Sri Lanka recently and that performance should stand them in good stead as they welcome New Zealand to Brisbane as 5/6 favs with William Hill.
The Kiwis are 11/2 outsiders (Sportingbet) and while a victory may be beyond them, there will, as usual, be plenty of fireworks.
Jesse Ryder hit 16 sixes in a warm up at the weekend and is Paddy Power’s 5/1 chance to top score for the tourists while Ross Taylor, always capable of the extraordinary, is 4/1 fav with Boylesports.
