    Been pretty vocal in my views so here are my bets for what it is worth

    1. Oz will win at least one test

    2. Cook will not rank amongst the 2 highest run scorers for England

    3. Clarke will not rank amongst the 2 highest run scorers for Australia

    4. Swann will not average under 35 with the ball

    IMO, this series will spring a lot of surprises

    You been on the Stellas son

    So are you taking the 2 bowler option or the entire sides averages bar Clarke??

    Brisbane test is 21st Nov......I know it's not long but we really can't take this into the next series.

    I am now so certain of England victory this summer that I have already set about comissioning a tapestry to commemorate it.

    6 months if you want to roll with me.

    Blimey Uvo, considering you think Bell is such a spud you're certainly wanting to hedge your bets here

    But I've always been a reckless fella so you're on. Conditions are now that complicated I don't even know what I'm betting on though.........can you clarify??

    But whoever looses keeps their dodgy Avatar from the end of the England series until day 1 of the Australian one.

    Any batsman except Clarke or any two proper bowlers combined will average more than spud bell for the away ashes series.

    But I reckon two of our bowlers individually will average more than bell, I'd want better than even odds for it though

    I'll take it if a drawn series is in my favour.

    I've never done an avatar bet but am willing to do one if there are any takers from the crims with a bet worth taking.
