The burning pink ball question is will it swing ?
so just answer that question and you could will a fab NowTv code

So the biggest prize in sport is up for grabs again.
Who will punch above their weight ? Are England(and Wales) already on the ropes ?

The 2nd test starts 3.30am UK time(the first mens Ashes day/night test)
at the Adelaide oval

Comp.
Prize.
One nowtv two month Entertainment code
via snatch one per account expires at the end of the year renews at £7.99 if you do not cancel.

Rulz.
1) Must have been a member at least three months
and posted at least 5 deals.

2)Oh behave already.

3)Guess the number catches taken behind(by the wicketkeeper/in the slips)in the match.As a tiebreaker how many lbw dismissals

If you want to enter but don't want to prize just add (no thanks) after your guess
so my entry is 12 5(no thanks)

4These rulz are subject to change(my guess is they probably will)
my decision is final no correspondence will be entered into.

5)Cut off time for entries 2/12 3.25am UK time
winner announced 5 or so days later

Clue.
less than forty

have a prize for the second test as well see how it goes after that

What is the competition asking?:
Who will win?
What will be the score?
Who will be the man of the match?

I'm sorry, would you be able to explain this in further detail please?

My guess is 454 (sometimes they do extra overs in a day) and predict the first test to be a draw.
411
Sorry that the comp is a bit boring was trying not to scare away the uninitiated

more predictions here

I am going for a draw in the first test an England(and Wales) win in the second
and then the whirlwind 2-2 overall and retain the ashes
A win for England for me. Bowling is great and if they bowl first, they can get through the Aussies quickly.
It will be close. But England to win.

Random stab at 422 - of course a three day win by an innings for England would be nice.

Come on England. Time to get a wicket (if you are bowling)
