Botham's got beef - "We will win the Ashes... quite comfortably"
Weakened Aussie bowling attack convinces Beefy that England can, & will win the Ashes.
Former England cricket legend Ian Botham predicts England will gain victory in the Ashes when the series returns to England in 2009 which starts 8th July at Glamorgan’s Swalec Stadium.
“After Brett Lee, a terrific performer... there’s no spinner, no Glenn McGrath and if our bowlers stay fit, we’ll win The Ashes”
After predicting Freddie & the boys would walk away the victors in 2005, Botham now appears increasingly confident that England can beat the depleted Aussie side, which is missing match winning stars such as Glenn McGrath & "spin-king" Shane Warne.
But the question remains…
Is a depleted Australia side still held in higher regard than a strong English line-up?
Here at William Hill, it’ll take more than Ian Botham to change our opinions.
We still think the Aussies have what it takes and make the convicts 8/11 to take the Series with England 13/8 - the draw 5/1.
