The 4th Ashes Test of the series is creeping ever closer and you can make the most out of William Hill’s Bet £10 Get £40 offer by betting on any Ashes market as England prepare to do battle with Australia yet again.
Many have already billed the third Ashes Test as the greatest Test match in the history of cricket as the Headingley crowd were witness to a game which really did have it all. England were well on top on the opening day as they sent Australia packing for a below-par 179 with Jofra Archer tearing through the Aussie line-up with 6/45, however the hosts once again fell victim to a batting collapse by being bowled out for an embarrassing 67. Marcus Labuschagne followed up his first innings total of 74 with a score of 80 in the second to help steer the tourists to 246 all out, meaning that England had to score 359 in order to triumph.
Unlikely as this seemed, England started to come good at 244/4 although they were left teetering on the edge when a cluster of wickets fell to leave them 286/9. They needed 73 to win this third Test with just one wicket remaining and once again the home fans sensed that this wasn’t to be their day. How wrong they were.
Ben Stokes was the man at the crease and he went on to notch perhaps the greatest century ever by an English player in front of an unbelieving Headingley crowd. The hosts had won and stopped Australia in their tracks just as it looked as though they had managed to retain the Ashes. Even those who had a distinct aversion to the game were hooked and the prospect of more heroics in the next Test will certainly appeal to a much wider audience.
England will be in very high spirits right now and who can blame them? Stokes is looking incredible, Root has got himself back in amongst the runs and James Anderson is set to make a return to action. As such we believe that the home side are the ones to back, especially at odds of 11/10 with William Hill Bookmakers. Australia offer plenty of value at 7/4, however England are riding on the crest of a wave and are very much in the driving seat ahead of their penultimate Test in the series.
