    I'm going to bet all my money on England just so that Murphy's law will make them lose/draw. :ponting2:

    :ponting2: Law didn't work in India's last 8 Away Games :ponting2:

    Na :ponting3: I made bets on other games, took some big risks and they paid off.

    It didn't work for me in the UAE :( It did in the ODI's though :D

    Worked for me :D :ponting2:

    Indeed.

    Squashy also said it was the season for whitewashes. If England win this test it will be the 5th whitewash England have been involved in over the last year, 6 if you include the India ODI's in England last year, which we won 3-0.

    ^ How about the 5-0 whitewash against India in India? :yuvraj:
     
  11. Cabinet96

    Cabinet96 New Member

    Yeah that.

    These are these are the whitewashes involving England:

    India, Test Series, Won 4-0
    India, ODI Series, Won 3-0
    India, ODI Series, Lost 5-0
    Pakistan, Test Series, Lost 3-0
    Pakistan, ODI Series, Won 4-0

    I wonder what odds you could have got on some of them. I reckon us beating Pak 4-0 in the ODI's would have been very friendly odds.

    That ODI Series against Pakistan was bizzare. :facepalm1:

    Biggest News

    :woot::woot::woot::woot::woot: Awesome news, bring in him and Gayle and let the fun times begin

    I highly doubt Gayle will play. I'm not sure you're aloud to bring players into your squad unless there are injuries, like in this case with Roach and Narine.

    Pity Roach is injured. WI have basically lost their best bowler to gain one who SHOULD be good but will be on debut. And England usually play spin ok in Eng.

    Loved Roach's aggressive nature man!

    Actually? :rofl1:

    Roach was awesome. :(

    That's debatable... Rampaul has been the better bowler over the last year.
