Friday, January 26 from 2.20pm at the Adelaide Oval, Adelaide.

IT’S amazing what can happen to a cricket team when you change the colour of the ball.

England wrapped up the five-game ODI series against Australia on Tuesday with a third-straight comprehensive victory.

After a one-sided Ashes test series, it looks like the roles have been reversed in the limited overs format, with Australia on the receiving end.

An England batting line up that struggled to fight against the Australian quicks while wearing the whites has been fearless in the ODI series, putting the sword to an under-performing bowling line up.

Jason Roy, Joe Root, Alex Hales and Jos Buttler have made exceptional, clocking runs up at will.

Such was Joe Root’s form, the Australians did not dismiss him until the third game of the series.

For Australia, the form of Aaron Finch has been a joy to watch. Finch has scored two centuries and a half century in the three matches thus far, top-scoring for the home side on each occasion.

The same question we asked of England during the test series must now be asked of Australia.

Alex Hales odds and tips vs. Australia 4th ODI

It’s hard to beat any ODI side that has a functioning, in-form top order.

While we’ve only seen them in three games down under so far, it’s hard to argue to state any limited overs top order more dangerous than England’s.

Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow bring the power at the top, Joe Root the guile and skill to keep the score ticking over and Alex Hales has the ability to be the most damaging batsmen in this line up.

Hales has compiled scores of 4, 57 and 1 in the series so far and is due for a big one.

Let’s take a look at his odds:

If, like us, you think Alex Hales is due a big score and the short square boundaries at the Adelaide Oval will suit his game perfectly, there’s some value to be had here.

We like the $2 at CrownBet.com.au for him to top 33.5 runs as a good multi filler and should he top-score for England in a victory, the $15 for man of the match looks very good value.

Aaron Finch odds and best bets vs. England 4th ODI

The Victorian with the barrel chest and chewing gum has been in the form of his life opening the batting this summer.

Despite a lacklustre BBL season, Finch saved his best for the ODIs, where he has scored 106, 107 and 62 in the three matches – comfortably putting him at the top of the runs list so far.

The question is, can Finch deliver yet again?

England have struggled to find a way to evict the right-hander so far and we believe Finch is going to bring his form into this game too.

Let’s take a look at his odds:

It seems that the bookies have had enough of shelling out on Finch and have tightened the odds on another masterclass.

We can’t recommend the $3.50 for most Aussie runs, but we think he’s value at $2.15 at CrownBet.com.au to score another half century on a flat Adelaide deck.
