England will be full of confidence after a successful series against the West Indies, but they face a sterner test in Australia. Hills are unable to split the pair for the series offering 10/11 take your pick but as fast starters Australia are 4/5 favourites to win the first ODI that starts on Friday. Alastair Cook is 5/2 to be England’s top bat, with Ian Bell 11/4 and Jonathan Trott 10/3. Shane Watson tops the Australian figures at 11/4 with Michael Clarke offered at 7/2.

“We think that England will miss KP and there is a real chance that England will be overconfident, as a result Australia are favourites for the first ODI,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
