Cricket – Plunkett plans to stun Aussies

Liam Plunkett is looking forward to the challenge of helping England beat Australia in this month's five-match one-day series. The Yorkshire fast bowler was not involved in the recent Ashes defeat but has been drafted in for the one-day series, which starts on Sunday. England are 6/4 with bet365 to win the first ODI against Australia while Plunkett is 7/2 to be his team's top bowler in the game. "It's always a test when you come to somebody else's backyard," said Plunkett. "A lot of our guys didn't play in the Ashes, we're full of energy and full of beans." Australia have replaced injured batsman Chris Lynn with veteran Cameron White.
