Ashes Competition - Win a Cricket Bat of your choice!
« on: July 09, 2013, 04:49:53 PM »

PRIZE: Cricket Bat of your choice (whether we have it in stock or not - could even get one specially made for you).
WHERE TO ENTER: http://www.facebook.com/itsjustcricket
HOW TO ENTER: Comment on today's post (now live) with your score prediction for the Ashes Test Series.  Entries must be specific ie. "drawn series" will not count, but 1-1 / 2-2 etc. will.
DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: Wednesday July 17th, 11.59pm - so you have until the night before the Lord's Test to mull it over...
FORMAT: All correct predictions will go into a hat and then the winner will be drawn at random from this.

Sharing the competition with your friends is optional, but recommended!  :)

Best of luck!  :)

Thanks for all the entries so far, guys, and good luck especially to those who went for a 5-0 England whitewash! Needless to say, the predictions since 11am today have generally been a bit different!

C'mon rain. The only way my 1-1 might have a chance. Rain all of August.

Yes, unfortunately! I think whoever is holding back entering until next Wednesday's deadline is very smart! The Ashes are always tricky to predict...

In a way, I'm glad England didn't have it their own way today.  I would love to see another 2005 or 2009.  They were incredible Test series and a great advert for Test cricket, and such a competitive and close fought series would be very timely for Test cricket right now...

I think 2-1 could definitely be on the cards...win @ TB, draw at Lord's, lose @ OT, win @ Durham, draw @ Oval.

3-1 to England for me. One rained off. We get complacent for one game and Clarke does a double hundred or something silly. Otherwise Eng are just too good.

5-0 to Australia... ahh that's not right, that was my last "Owzthat" Ashes when I was 9 in the 1980s. I miss that game... b*ll*cks to computer cricket matches, dice was and always will be far superior.  :D

Went 3-0 but thinking now 3-1.

Why?  Well, a draw is likely somewhere.  I'd thought two before I saw the weather forecast and the fact that the second back to back is at Durham, which might play into the hands of Australia with their deeper bowling reserves.
