Graeme Swann is evens with Ladbrokes to be England’s top wicket taker in Australia this Winter following today's squad announcement.  Paceman Jimmy Anderson is 3/1, Stuart Broad and Steve Finn are both 4/1 and likely back up bowlers Chris Tremlett 16/1 and Monty Panesar 20/1.

Captain Andrew Strauss is expected to lead the way with the willow and is 7/2 to be the top run scorer followed by Kevin Pietersen and Jonathan Trott both available at 4/1.

The bookies make Ponting’s men slight favourites at 4/6 with England at 9/4, and a 3-1 series victory to the Australians the likeliest of outcomes at 6/1.

David Williams, Ladbrokes' cricket betting expert, said: "It’s 24 years since the last England series victory against the Aussies on home soil so it’s no surprise they’re slight favourites.  England are in great form though and it’s likely the Barmy Army will heavily back the boys in the coming weeks as they fully expect England to right the wrongs of 2006/7."
