Australia are now the clear favourites to win the 2015 Ashes series after winning the second test at Lord's in emphatic fashion.

Michael Clarke's side put England to the sword at Lord's to win by 405 runs.

The victory levelled the series a 1-1 with three games to play and bookmaker Sportsbet have made Australia firm favourites to go on and win the series.

Australia are now $1.53 to win the series with England blowing out from $2.00 to $5.00 on the back of the defeat.

England look set to make changes after batting collapses at the top of the order in both innings at Lord's.

Adam Lyth, Gary Ballance and Ian Bell look the men most at risk of being dropped. 

Australia decision to drop Shane Watson for Mitchell Marsh paid dividends with the all-rounder taking three wickets in the game included the key captures of Alastair Cook and Ben Stokes to halt a first innings rival for England.
