Paddy Power has England as clear 1/5 favourites to win the series in Bangladesh and 10/11 to win all the one day matches. Whilst much has been made of the missing captain Strauss, there is a potential series debut for big hitter Craig Kieswetter on Sunday.

Whilst Pietersen is favourite at 3/1 to be England top series runscorer, the inform debutant Kieswetter is 4/1. Swann and Broad are joint favourites to take the most wickets in the one day series.

With growing concerns about the number of South African born players in the England team Paddy Power are now betting how many South Africans line-up for England in their opening World Cup Twenty20 match, with three players at 1/2 and four players 3/1.

Roberto Coladangelo spokesman for Paddy Power said: “Kieswetter may have ridden his luck in the last couple of games but he is in fine form going into his first full series. We think he has a good chance of topping the runscoring for England.”
