Cricket – Bayliss makes England favourites claim

England head coach Trevor Bayliss is in no doubt that his one-day international side should be 'one of the favourites' looking ahead to the 2019 World Cup on home soil. Bayliss spoke out after watching his side comprehensively thrash Australia 4-1 in their recent five-match ODI series Down Under and he is looking for the side to build on that good form looking to next year's 50-over tournament. On England, who are available at 7/2 with bet365 to win the World Cup, Bayliss said: "The way we have been playing one-day cricket over the last few years and the way we continue to play - and obviously with the World Cup at home - we should be one of the favourites. "Only time will tell how we handle that, but if we go into all of the series between now and that World Cup thinking we are favourites, then that will be good practice for us and we will see how the players react."
