England Cricket: Peter Moores evens to remain as coach for The Ashes

Will the under-fire Peter Moores still be in a job come summertime?

Antipodeans are highly fancied to replace Moores as head coach of the England side...

After a catastrophic World Cup failure, calls for Peter Moores' dismissal are coming from all angles and Betfair Sportsbook now make it 8/11 that he won't be in charge for the first 2015 Ashes Test match.

And it's two Aussies and a Kiwi who are fancied to take the helm of the national team should Moores get his marching orders.

Tom Moody heads the market at 3.02/1, with Jason Gillespie 3.7511/4. Mumbai Indians' head coach John Wright is 5.04/1 third favourite in Betfair Sportsbook's market.

The first Englishman on the list is former captain Michael Vaughan at 9.08/1.

Sports Trader for Betfair, Ross White commented: "Despite public support from Paul Downton, punters aren't so convinced and are backing him to be gone by the time the Ashes comes around this year. In terms of his replacement, former Australian cricketer and ex-Sri Lankan coach, Tom Moody is now 2/1 after a flurry of bets. Jason Gillespie is a close second favourite at 11/4, even after admitting he was happy at Yorkshire, could he be tempted away by the challenge of the national squad?"
