The Australian juggernaut has blazed it's way through Perth and now, with the Ashes secured, another 5-0 whitewash is very much in the sights of Michael Clarke's men. They are 15/8 to complete a 5-0 clean sweep and there's no sign of anything stopping Australia after three thumping wins.

But history suggests England can produce a performance in Melbourne or Sydney. They won at both venues on the last tour and even when 4-0 down heading to Sydney in 2002-03, managed to reduce the damage to 4-1. The same scoreline in this series can be backed at 7/2.

Over in South Africa, India are about to tackle the world's No. 1 team in a two-match series and 5/1 about a 1-1 draw looks the best value. India have swing bowlers that should be effective in the first Test in Johannesburg and South Africa's record at Durban, venue for the second Test, is poor.
