| 19.01.2012

PAKISTAN are now the favourites to win the Test series against England, according to Ladbrokes.

After thrashing England by ten wickets, Pakistan are now odds-on at 1/2 (from 5/2) to triumph in the series and they’re 9/4 to win in the next fixture in Abu Dhabi.

England are also the underdogs at 5/2 for the ODI series, with Pakistan favoured at 6/4. The draw can be backed at 6/4.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “The draw was backed off the boards. The cheers here got louder with every England wicket that fell.”

She added: “England are clearly struggling. The odds now suggest a whitewash isn’t out of the question.”
