England Cut For First Test After Encouraging Start

England are 9/4 to win the opening Test of the Ashes after a decent first day, according to William Hill. Australia remain favourites at 6/4 with the draw 13/8.

Australia are 1/2 to win the Ashes with England 10/3 and the drawn series 9/2. 

“A steady first day has seen England’s odds of victory for this first Test come in from 3/1 to 9/4 and they will no doubt be looking to continue that on Thursday,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
