England face a revved up Pakistan team in this summers four match Test Series. Paddy Power has England as 2/5 favourites to win the series but after a recent win over Australia the Pakistan team are not short on confidence. England are 9/1 for the series whitewash whilst the shortest priced series outcome is a 3-0 win for England at 9/2.

The Pakistan bowling attack are building a fearsome reputation but the England camp sound unmoved by the potential of the young team and feel they can get on top of the visiting bowlers. The England batsman will need to be wary though if conditions favour the Pakistani seamers, who struck fear into the Aussie batting line up recently. Captain Andrew Strauss is tipped at 10/3 with Paddy Power to be the leading scorer in England’s 1st innings and 3/1 to be the series top runscorer.

England will look to exploit an inexperienced Pakistan side who’s batting looks vunerable after they nearly threw away a big lead against the Aussies. Swann appears to be the man to take a big haul and is 15/8 to be England’s top wicket taker, whilst Broad is 9/4 to make an early impression and take the most wickets for England in the 1st innings.

Roberto Coladangelo, cricket betting spokesman for Paddy Power said; “Despite a few recent injuries England are a settled Test team and will be looking to use their experience to outwit the Pakistani challenge. However if the Pakistan seamers get into their stride as they did when demolishing Australia for 88 recently, then England could be in for a rough ride. England know that this is the series to build momentum ahead of the Ashes later in the year and a convincing win is the minimum required.”
