Money For England As Punters Bet That Ben Will Be Back

A number of William Hill customers appear to have interpreted England’s decision to keep schtum over any possible Ashes appearances for Ben Stokes as a positive and there has been money around for England to win the Ashes at 3/1. Meanwhile Joe Root is popular at 7/4 to be the series top batsman, with James Anderson 13/8 to be top England Bowler.


“Clearly Ben Stokes has not been ruled out and there is some cash about from customers pre-empting a possible positive result for England,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
