Cricket Betting: Cook Ton Seals Ashes Spot
Alastair Cook has been slashed to 1/16 to open the batting for England in the first Ashes test, according to Ladbrokes.
The under-fire batsman silenced his critics with a gutsy century at The Oval and the bookies reckon he's now nailed on to face the Aussies this Winter.
David Williams of Ladbrokes said of the latest cricket betting odds: "Cook's century was probably the biggest of his career and his big score has cemented his place at the top of the batting."
Cook is an unlikely 100/1 to be the Sports Personality of the Year. At tea, England were 5/2 to win the Test match against Pakistan with the visitors still the 2/7 favourites.
