The Better Team Wins
The home side field an unchanged side from the one that conceded defeat to Australia at the weekend. Five days of exciting cricket came to a close on Sunday with the Aussies winning by a margin of 185 runs. England needed to bat out the final afternoon to have any chance of securing a draw, but they weren’t able to live up to the efforts we saw in the third test match when they pulled victory from the jaws of defeat.
Good cricket was played on both sides but, in the end, the right team won and there could be no complaints from either. Will England rally once again and save face with a final test victory? Bookmakers don’t believe so and are offering the home win at 6/4 with Unibet. Australia is even money favourites at Unibet, the draw 5/1 with most firms.
