    Default Ashes 2013 Round Two

    I'm not much of a cricket trader, follower or expert. But the idea of doing the Aussies on their own turf engenders a bit of patriotic pride. I shan't dabble much in the individual tests due to a) ignorance and b) the need for sleep. A price that did catch my eye, however, was England to Retain 'Yes' available to lay at 1.57.

    My reasoning? Nothing more than a strong feeling that Australia will win the first test at the Gabba, and that a modest profit will ensue.

    'Strong feeling that Australia will win the first test'....but not THAT strong!

    Embarrassing, but profitable

    It looks, after all, as if that was the Mug bet. Please, if you know what the odds an Aussie whitewash were at the outset, do me a favour, and stay shtum

    I don't do "schtum" ( auf Deutsch ), The odds were 66/1 with William Hill, probably well over 100/1 with Betfair.

    Put it behind you and pile all your money on a World Cup win for England.
