1st Ashes Test - Gabba, Brisbane
Entry Example: Michael Clarke, 150 runs. #TattsTipster Ashes #AUSvENG
The first ball of the 2013/14 Ashes series will be bowled at the Gabba in Brisbane on Thursday, 21 November. Australia will be out to prove that they have what it takes to regain the Ashes after a disappointing series losing 3-0 over the English summer. The Aussies have made plenty of changes in their bid to win back the Ashes most notably the inclusion of in-form one day captain George Bailey who will don the baggy green for the first time in his career.
England hasn’t won at the Gabba since 1986 and will need to start quickly if they are to open the series with a win. English skipper Alistair Cook is the key to his countries success and will be hoping to post a big score after failing to record a century in the last series. England boasts a formidable pace attack that is capable of knocking over wickets quickly. Make sure you get your tip in for Australia’s top innings batsman and runs scored for a chance to win $200.

3rd Ashes Test - WACA, Perth
Competition Opens: Thursday, 12th December
Ashes test matches are always interesting when played at the WACA in Perth.
