Stan James bet 10/1 that Alastair Cook, who will begin the 3rd day at Adelaide 136 not out and has 438 runs in the series to date, breaks Sir Donald Bradman's Ashes record of 974 runs set on the 1930 Tour of England. England are 8/13 to take a 1-0 lead with the draw at 13/10 and an unlikely Aussie win 22/1.
Head of PR and cricket betting expert Charlie McCann said: "It is amazing to think that Cook was not even guaranteed his place in the starting XI when the Tour began and we were betting 16/1 that he would be top Ashes run scorer and 8/1 that he would be top England batsman. We only bet 10/1 that he breaks the Dons Ashes record after his magnificent innings' in Brisbane and now Adelaide and with the Baggy Green bowling looking modest at best who knows?"
Will Alastair Cook beat Sir Donald Bradman's Ashes record of 974 runs in a series?
