VAUGHAN BACKS ENGLAND

Michael Vaughan says that England are going all the way in the Ashes. After dominant performances with ball and bat, the fourth Ashes Test is England’s all the way. I thought they were the value bet at the start of the Test and, after two terrific days, the Betfair market agrees, with Andrew Strauss’ men in to 1.18 to win.

There is so much time left in the game and I think England can bowl Australia out again, probably for around 250.

There is so much pressure on the Aussies, they are playing with so little confidence and some players are playing for their places in the team. I can easily envisage them folding again in the second innings and concentrating on the fifth and final test, hoping for a fresh start in Sydney.
