William Hill have opened a match bet market on who will score more runs between Craig Kieswetter and Eoin Morgan in the first ODI against Australia on Tuesday. Kieswetter has been priced at 4/6 to score more runs than Morgan with Morgan 11/10 to do the same against Kieswetter. With many big knocks expected, Hills are offering 13/8 that a century is hit during the match, 4/9 that one is not. Australia have been made slight favourites to win at 4/5 compared to England’s Evens. Australia are 4/7 to win the series.
"So far the money has been for Australia but we are very happy to take them on as we think the England team will be able to transfer their twenty20 form to the 50 over game," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams
