The Cricket Badger James Buttler is joined once again by our very own Oli Fisher and cricket journalist Aakash Sivasubramaniam to reflect on Australia’s win at Old Trafford and give their praise to Australia and conduct a post mortem on England’s failure to regain the Ashes urn.
Selection, a priority given to white-ball cricket, Joe Root’s captaincy and who should replace Trevor Bayliss as England coach all come up for discussion as the Badger in particular marks out his long run and lets off some steam.
And the charity competition continues as the trio make their prections for the Fifth Test at The Oval and put up their bets to find the best value in the Paddy Power markets. The winner at the end of the Ashes series will be able to make a donation to the charity of his choice.
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.
Gamble responsibly and we will see you next week! Enjoy the Ashes!
