The England cricket team may already be the winners of the 2011 Sports Team of the Year Award according to bookmaker Ladbrokes.

Since they retained the Ashes their odds have been slashed from 6/1 to even money and they could go odds-on if they win the final Test in Sydney.

England’s Rugby Union team are the 6/1 second favourites in a year when they could potentially win the 6 Nations and the Rugby World Cup. The shortest football team is Manchester United at 7/1.

Cricket betting expert Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Despite the series straddling the end of ’10 and the start of ’11 punters believe no other team will eclipse their feat even though they may have 365 days in which to try.”
