England have lost the Ashes and all they can hope for is that the Aussies take their foot off the gas and they get a consolation victory. Sadly for England fans the odds suggest that this is wishful thinking and England are 1/3 to fail to win a single Test in the series.
William Hill think England fans need to prepare themselves for the Ashes to finish in a humiliating 5-0 series whitewash following a second series defeat.

Things are looking bleak for England with Australia 4/11 to win the second test. Perhaps more dispiriting for England fans, William Hill now make a 5-0 series whitewash their favourite result for the series.
“Things are looking bleak for England and we cannot see much light at the end of the tunnel,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
