Cricket Betting: England On The Drift For The Ashes

Cricket Betting: England On The Drift For The Ashes
 

England are on the drift in The Ashes cricket betting according to Ladbrokes.

Following England's less than impressive start to the 1st Test against New Zealand, the firm are still favouring a home win this summer at 1/2 (from 4/9), with Australia's odds cut to 3/1 (from 7/2).

And for optimistic cricket punters out there it's a 25/1 chance that England complete the 5-0 whitewash.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "On paper England should still come out of The Ashes victorious, but as far as we're concerned there's not that much difference between the two sides right now."
