Andrew Strauss is 12/1 with Ladbrokes to be the Player of the Series Down Under this Winter. The England talisman is the 7/2 favourite to be the top England run scorer and 7/1 to be the top overall series run scorer.

It’s 3/1 he notches a total of 2 centuries and 4/1 that one of those comes in the first innings. He is also 6/1 to be the first player to hit 100 in the series.

A Ladbrokes punter must have faith in Strauss and his men as he placed the biggest ever Ashes bet of £250,000 yesterday on England to win the series. England's odds have been cut from 7/4 to 13/8.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes, reacting to the latest cricket odds, said: “Strauss’s performances at the crease will be key to England’s attempts at retaining the Ashes. A vintage display from the skipper would be a nightmare scenario for the bookies.”
