Australia are the 6/4 favourites to beat England in the Boxing Day test at the MCG, according to Ladbrokes.

Ricky Ponting's team completed an easy win over the visitors in Perth to level the Ashes series at 1-1 and the bookies fear the pendulum has now swung away from the English.

Ladbrokes were left celebrating after England's dismal display in Western Australia.

David Williams, cricket betting expert at Ladbrokes said: "The wheels fell off the England bandwagon is spectacular fashion and nobody saw it coming. England had been backed off the boards in the build-up to the Test."
