Paddy Power pays out on England Ashes following Trent Bridge day 1 blowout

Broad

Paddy Power has announced another early pay out in 2015, following the England cricket teams rampant opening day performance against Australia in the fourth test match of 2015 Ashes series.

Held at Trent Bridge (Nottingham), the opening day of the fourth Ashes test saw England fast Bowler Stuart Board dismantle the Aussie batting line-up by taking an eight wicket hall. Board would write himself into English cricket folklore by bowling out Australia for a meagre 60 runs in their first innings.

Put into bat following an epic morning session of bowling, England would charge to 274/4 as batsman Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow went for the Aussie jugular, by scoring a combined 198 runs.

England who lead the Ashes series 2-1, would close out the day with a 214 lead.

Paddy Power shortly announced that it had closed and paid out its Ashes Series win market as the odds on an England Victory shortened to 1/9. The bookmaker has not disclosed the total amount paid out, but detailed that it had hundreds of thousands of pounds placed on England.

“…we’ve raised the white flag and paid out on England’s heroes after sending the Kangaroos back to the balcony before lunch,” a Paddy Power spokesman said.
