    Bet the boys over on ASF are licking their lips picking up $2.80 odds for a draw.

    The Windies will be cheering, won't be a series white wash. Should sign up for their test side now, won't be part of a losing side ;-)

    As much as this series has shown the West Indies in very poor form, I haven't enjoyed this 2x 3 match test series format that they've been doing on and off for a while now and am not keen on the 5x ODI series format either... bring back the tri-series ODIs and give us a proper 5 match test series.

    I won a signed ball by him once, I gave it to someone who was a fan.

    Betfair paying $4.50 for a draw before the game but I put my money on Australia winning.
    Does anyone think we have a winning chance?

    Next time you meet him, ask him to stop talking when the match is on, even though he is paid to do it.

    What.... not talk for 5 days? Anyway, its good to see him come and support his daughter when she plays, only a few partners/parents come to support and watch so Mark and his wife are pretty fantastic.
