Stan James eased Australia from 5/6 to 10/11 for the Ashes after their 7th successive defeat this time to Sri Lanka in a rain interrupted ODI in Sydney which gave the tourists their first series win in Australia.
Head of PR Charlie McCann: " England had a satisfactory day in Perth and we saw fit to cut the odds on Stuart Broad being the top English series bowler from 7/2 to 10/3 after his three wickets and eased Graeme Swann to 11/8 from 5/4 after his one wicket from 20 overs. Alistair Cook continues to struggle and it seems amazing that a first-choice opening batsman can be 8/1 to be top bat for England and 16s to be top series batsman. Australia were 4/5 at the beginning of the week but are out to 10/11 and a good day with the bat for England tomorrow may see the Baggy Greens touch evens.
