England target four in a row

With the series already won, England will be eager to ensure there is no let-up when they face Australia in the fourth ODI in Adelaide.

The tourists have been in seemingly unstoppable form in the opening three games of the five-match series, with those performances finally seeing England go odds-on at 20/21 to win again on Friday.

The hosts remain slight favourites at 20/27 so there is not a lot of value to be had in the outright win market.

Runs would appear to be on cards at the Adelaide Oval, where David Warner and Travis Head added 284 for the first wicket when the Baggy Greens defeated Pakistan 12 months ago – a match in which both sides passed 300 runs.

Warner, who made 179 in that game, has struggled for form so far in the series and will be desperate to improve his return so 33/10 to be top team batsman may just interest you.

If you want to stick with the man in form, Aaron Finch is still a decent shout at 11/4 while Marcus Stoinis has smashed valuable runs further down the order and at 10/1 is a long shot worth a second look.

For England, their top order are all relatively short prices so maybe look a little further down and who could possibly be in better from than Jos Buttler, whose amazing century was the catalysts for the series-clinching win in Sydney.

He is 6/1 to be top team batsman as is captain Eoin Morgan, who is in need of runs after a disappointing series to date.

With the ball, left-arm paceman Mitchell Starc claimed four wickets in the run-laden clash against Pakistan last year and at 13/5 offers hope of a reasonable return.

The Three Lions will probably have to cope without Liam Plunkett, who limped out of the Sydney game with a hamstring problem, so further responsibility will fall on the shoulders of Mark Wood.

The fit-again quickie has impressed on his return to the fold but has not been rewarded greatly in the wickets column.

Two for 46 last time out are his series-best figures and he will want to get amongst the home batsmen once again and at 7/2 to be top team bowler represents a decent option.

Leg-spinner Adil Rashid is almost the safe choice for England and is 33/10 to be top team bowler.
