After the comprehensive win by Aus in Perth, its now England who have the thinking to do.
Ricky has a broken finger, but the Aus team spirit must be v high. Eng bowlers do look a bit tired – and the Aus curators will provide pace friendly pitches, negating the spin threat of Swann.
Am starting to think Eng will do well, to retain Ashes. Have taken profits on the my series market bets.
4th Test – opening prices
4 hours to kick-off :
This is my opening position :
I feel like I want to get the draw onside, at least initially.
End day 1 – Aus 98 all out. Eng 157 for 0, with some rain.
Draw backers (inc me), doing their bollox.
Never really traded, as Draw went against me so quick.
Final Positions :
So, loss £5100 on Test
