England favourites to take one-day form into T20 clash
After a superb 5-0 whitewash over Australia in the one-day series, England will look to maintain that momentum into the T20s.
Eoin Morgan’s side have been clinical and destructive with both bat and ball in the one-day matches, leaving Australia trailing in their wake.
And with a World Cup on the horizon, England are becoming major contenders in white-ball cricket.
So it’s little wonder they’re 1/2 favourites to win in Birmingham against a battered and bruised Aussie side.
The tourists could desperately use a win, and 13/8 says they end a beleaguering trip on a high.
But they’ve had little answer lately for England’s sheer batting power.
Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler have all shone in recent weeks.
The former trio share 7/2 favouritism to be England’s top runscorer. But it was Buttler’s 110 not out which sealed the 5-0 whitewash on Sunday.
Buttler has been touted as a key man for England’s World Cup chances, and he’s 9/2 to continue his form and top score at Edgbaston.
There’s also 7/4 about the Taunton-born ace hitting three or more sixes.
Australia mustn’t be discounted however. Especially when they boast quality like Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell.
Finch is always capable of finding the boundaries and beyond, and the 31-year-old is 3/1 favourite to hit the most runs for the Aussies.
