ENGLAND ARE 1/25 with Ladbrokes to beat Ireland in the Cricket World Cup.

Andrew Strauss is the joint 5/2 favourite with Kevin Pietersen to score the most runs for England with Ian Bell a 5/1 chance. Ed Joyce is the 3/1 market leader to be Ireland’s leading runscorer, with William Porterfield just behind at 4/1.

It’s co-favourites of three for top England bowler as Stuart Broad, James Anderson and Graeme Swann all earn 3/1 quotes to take the most wickets in the match. England remain 7/1 for the tournament with Ireland 500/1 outsiders.

Alex Donohue said: “After the thriller in Bangalore we expect England to have an easier ride against Ireland. The odds also suggest Strauss could put in another decent shift with the bat.”
