In week four it’s James and Aakash with Oli chipping in briefly from beautiful Scarbardos where Yorkshire are taking on Notts. It’s time to look ahead to the 3rd Ashes Test at Headingley.
James Buttler, the Cricket Badger, is joined by Cricket 365’s Oli Fisher and cricket journalist Aakash Sivasubramaniam to assess England’s chances of levelling the series at Headingley, what an impact Jofra Archer has made and how pivotal could the absence of Steven Smith be?
The trio will be back every week throughout the Ashes series to assess the action just gone, chew over the talking points and make their predictions on the week ahead.
And in the charity competition the trio put up their bets for who wins the Test and find the best Paddy Power match bets. The winner at the end of the Ashes series will be able to make a donation to the charity of his choice.
Gamble responsibly and we will see you next week! Enjoy the Ashes!
