Despite defeat in the opening T20 in Hobart, there were a host of positive signs for England and they are Burlington Bertie 100/30 to win the remaining two rubbers and come back to take the series 2-1.
That England racked up 200 demonstrates the power their batting line up possesses. That they achieved such a score with only two of their batsman making a significant contribution reveals what more they have to come - Michael Lumb, Luke Wright and key man Eoin Morgan made just 22 runs between them and yet England still got within 14 runs of a world record chase.
Meanwhile, Australia's Big Bash League has reached the knockout phase and Perth Scorchers at 4/1 are set to go one better than the previous two seasons and take the title. They beat their semi-final opponents Sydney Sixers in the round-robin phase and have the pain of defeat in the last two finals to spur them to glory.
