Bookies have drawn up odds on the next England cricketer to be injured playing football after Joe Denly collapsed in training.

The 23-year-old Kent batsman follows a long line of players including Matt Prior, James Anderson and Ian Bell who have come to grief during a kick-about.

And Ladbrokes now make Prior and colleagues Ravi Bopara, Owais Shah and Ryan Sidebottom 8/1 joint favourites to be the next to fall foul of footie.

Cricket Betting Spokesman Robin Hutchison said: "We can't be the only ones wondering how they can't play on a damp pitch yet can throw themselves round playing football."

England are 5/4 underdogs to beat Australia in today's (Fri) First One Day International. The visitors are 4/7.

Captain Andrew Strauss and Ravi Bopara are 7/2 joint favourites to be top England runscorer.
