Stan James can't split England and Australia (13/8) ahead of the 3rd Test at Perth beginning in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Head of PR and cricket betting expert Charlie McCann said: "The Aussies are hurt and we think they will improve dramatically at the WACA with Mitchell Johnson, who looks certain of regaining his place in the side, having taken 21 wickets in his three Tests in Perth and likely to be a different proposition to the one we saw in Brisbane.

"We have been out to get England at 13/8 since the comprehensive victory in Adelaide and although they have been well backed we haven't exactly been knocked over just yet. Alastair Cook got a hundred in the 2nd innings in Perth four years ago and he and Kevin Pietersen are our 7/2 jt favs to be top England bat in the first innings."
