After closing the day on 85-4, England are 4/11 to have to follow on.


“We think the follow on is all but certain and with it will surely come a defeat for England,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “After today’s performance, Australia are odds on again for the series.”

Will England avoid the follow on: 4/11 no; 2/1 yes


Ashes winner: 2/1 England; 4/5 Australia; 4/1 draw
