There’s always room for improvement and Joe Root will be looking for some if the England Cricket team don’t improve fast, but where will he find replacements? Well the Vitality T20 Blast betting odds Sussex are suggesting it’ll be alongside Jofra Archer, but there are other teams in the hunt as a quick look at Bet365, one of the best online betting sites in the UK at the moment, will tell you, and more than a few players eyeing the Test ranks with a jealous eye.
With England going down so heavily in the first Ashes Test Match the rumours that Jofra Archer and Jack Leach might enter the squad for the game at Lord’s have been rife, however they’re not alone in chasing an England cap. The Vitality T20 Blast will give domestic players a chance to showcase their skills just when selectors are looking around for fresh talent, and the tight T20 Blast betting odds Sussex, Worcestershire, and Kent are getting signpost this as one to watch.

After a long summer league across two divisions we’re rapidly approaching the knock-out finale which will whittle the eight quarter finalists down to an eventual winner, and if you like to bet on sports in the UK you might want to check out the T20 Blast betting odds Sussex are getting. This one is going to be a humdinger. Not only because it’s a hard-fought competition in its own right but because it comes along at the right moment to ride the new wave of British cricket fans.
Sussex Favorites Just Ahead Of Lancashire As Finale Nears
This summer’s World Cup win will draw in the crowds to this one, and more than a few to take up the T20 Blast betting odds Sussex are garnering, however it’s the somewhat less impressive performance of the England Ashes Test side which will have the players chomping at the bit. With Jimmy Anderson out injured there’s an obvious opening, and if Jofra Archer is fingered for the post there’ll be a lot of players at his Sussex side and further afield who’ll sense opportunity.

Should things go badly at Lord’s, and, the way Steve Smith is batting, they will, the selectors may well take it upon themselves to make wholesale changes to a test side that has lacked teeth has had no consistency and seen some very dubious decisions from individuals. The T20 Blast betting odds Sussex gets then are very tempting at around 7/2 at Bet365, one of the best online sportsbook sites in the UK these days, because they’ll all be trying to be one of those selected.
Of course, they’re going to have some competition out there on the field with Lancashire hovering at 4/1 ready to spoil the day of anyone who bets on those T20 Blast betting odds Sussex are getting. It should also be noted that Worcestershire have been putting in a good showing at the crease of late which is why they get a neat 13/2 but that barely keeps them a sneaky boundary ahead of a quietly capable Middlesex side on 7/1 and the ever surprising Kent on a steady 15/2.

Naturally those taking advantage of UK gambling laws to have a flutter on the tournament will tell you that the likes of Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali and, yes, James Anderson, are difficult to replace. They’re right, however they are not irreplaceable. Should they continue to display such dysfunction the England team for the final few Ashes Tests could look very different and be composed of players upon which those T20 Blast betting odds Sussex are getting depend.
