William Hill have pushed out the price of England beating SA in the first Twenty20 from 8/15 to 4/9 as South Africa continue to be the only team that punters wish to back. Hills are offering 4/1 that England win the Test Series and make them 9/4 outsiders for the ODI series.
"On top of being pathetic earlier in the week, England now have an injury problem and to say they are friendless in the betting is an understatement," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
