Australia's chances of chalking up a commanding victory against Scotland in the one day international on Friday look to have been dented by a number of players being dropped out of the squad.

However, the withdrawal of the likes of Mike Hussey and Peter Siddle appears designed to give them a strong chance of beating England in the Twenty20 match on Sunday.

Following the loss of the Ashes, Australia stand at 1.67 with IASbet to regain some pride and win Sunday's match.

The hosts are at 2.20 to take the plaudits from the Old Trafford tie.

On paper Australia still look likely to overrun Scotland thanks to batsmen David Warner and Adam Voges being brought into Friday's squad to cover the post-Ashes drop-outs.

Warner got 89 from 43 balls on his Twenty20 debut in January against South Africa. Voges also has the record for the fastest-ever hundred in the history of one-day cricket in Australia.

Quoted by the Scotsman, all-rounder James Hopes said of the Scotland tie: "We are not going to treat it as an easy warm-up game or a practice match; this game is the start of our one-day series and it's important for us to start well."
