Boyd 10/1 to be top Rankin bowler

BOYD RANKIN is just 5/2 to play in the first Ashes test according to Ladbrokes.
As the former Ireland player is confirmed as a member of  the series squad, the bookies give him a far better chance of making a first test appearance than the recalled Monty Panesar, who is 10/1 to play. Rankin is a 10/1 chance in the top England wicket-taker market leaving Panesar as the 25/1 outsider with Jimmy Anderson (2/1) and Stuart Broad (9/4) favourite and second-favourite respectively. 

England are the 6/4 favourites for the first test with evens the price they win the series, leaving them as odds-on (1/2) favourite to retain the Ashes. It's 33/1 the away side complete a 5-0 whitewash with 50/1 the price the home team pull off the feat. 

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "We're keen to keep Rankin on our side when it comes to top England series wicket-taker. He comes in with a good chance of making an immediate impact."
