Ashes series thoughts

After the first 4 days, of the 1st test, its apparent to me, Aus have some problems :

  • Clarke is unfit
  • Their bowling attack is really weak
  • They lack belief
  • Aus crowds, dont really believe either.

The last point, is almost the most important for me. The english support is 50% down on the last Ashes tour, yet, the grounds are at least 50% English support – and on the last 2 days, probably more.

Brisbane is supposed to be a fortress, yet, they will struggle, to come out of the game, with many plus points.

I dont think Aus will win a game all series, and have laid them, accordingly.


Blog updated after 1st test, finished a draw.

New prices for series :

Aus 2.5

Eng 2.5

Draw 5.0

This is a correction from last night, but still shows far too much respect to Aus. They are a lay, at under 3.5, IMHO.
