    Furball 7

    Final standings:

    2 points to Furball for the win.
    .5 points for highest run scorer (Cook)
    .5 points for highest wicket taker (Anderson)
    1 point for series win
    1 point for most centurions in the series
    1 point for highest wicket taker

    For a final score of Furball 13 Ripper 4

    So, I now own ripper's avatar until either:
    • Australia regain the Ashes
    • Australia go ahead of England in the ICC Test Rankings
    • Australia beat England in the World Cup Final (I have ripper's avatar for 6 months if Australia eliminate England in an earlier round)


    I will pick your avatar in the morning. First thing, celebrate this win. Second thing, find myself a decent avatar.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Decent effort by Watson unfortunately ran into an all time great effort by Cook. Really only took this bet because I thought Watson would fail more than Cook succeed.

    Anyway your new avatar (what woman or bisexual England cricket fan could resist that picture)

    It is becoming a bit hard to distinguish between you lot - with England fans and bet-losing Aussies both sporting Ashes celebration themed avatars.

    Calling out GIMH to accept the challenge. 2 months (will consider an alternative amount if you wish)

    In the spirit of the 5 test series, it'll be 5 legged with 1 point awarded for each leg, in the event of a tie, both will select each others Avatar.
    I win if:
    1. Australia win the Ashes
    2. An Australian Bowler takes most wickets in series
    3. An Australian Batsman scores most runs in series
    4. Australia Wins more coin tosses
    5. Australia concede the least amount of sundries (including wides, no balls, leg byes, byes)

    Gimh wins if:
    I win if:
    1. England win/retain the Ashes
    2. An English Bowler takes most wickets in series
    3. An English Batsman scores most runs in series (tempted to make it english born and bred tbh)
    4. England win more coin tosses
    5. England concede the least amount of sundries (including wides, no balls, leg byes, byes)

    Let the fun begin!
    Not 100% on the last 2, reckon if I'd taken that bet it would have been 5-0 me.

    Straussy wins the tosses 3-2.

    Extras conceded by England 117.
    Extras conceded by Australia 131.

    5-0.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.
