Lyon v Ali - 1st Innings Wickets

Cricket - 1st Ashes Test - 22 Nov 23:30

A player match up between the teams spin bowlers in the first innings of the match. Ali is an excellent cricketer who offers Englands lots with the bat and has done a very decent job with the bowl. Nathan Lyon is a specialised spin bowler picked for no other reason that to bowl off-spin for Australia - which he has excellently for some time now.

Lyon has 269 test wickets to Ali's 128, Lyons takes his wickets at an average of 31 runs per wicket to Ali's 37.

Aside from being the better bowler - a very strong factor in the bet is the roles the bowlers will play. England will have 4 quick bowlers who are more than likely to get first use to the bowl before Mooen and when he does bowl I think the workload (and as such wicket taking potential) will be reduced.

Australia have 3 quicks who will not bowl long spells and Lyon will likely operate from one end for a good deal of England's innings whilst the three pacers are rotated from the other end.

Additional information for this bet is that a tie will be settled as a loss.
