Competition time at The Baggy Green Blog #1

To celebrate the New Year and the release of two outstanding cricket DVD titles, courtesy of Roadshow Entertainment, I will be running two competitions here at the Baggy Green Supporters Blog.

The second competition will be announced at a later date, but for now here is the first giveaway. Regrettably, this competition is only eligible to people with a valid delivery address in Australia or New Zealand due to customs regulations and delivery costs. One entry per person.

The Competition
Predict which Australian batsman will score the most runs this Carlton 5-match home ODI series against England, as well as how many runs you reckon he will score.

Australian ODI squad: David Warner, Aaron Finch, Shane Watson, Shaun Marsh, Michael Clarke (captain), George Bailey, Brad Haddin (wk), Glenn Maxwell, James Faulkner, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Coulter-Nile, James Pattinson, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty.

Competition closes on 11 January 2014, one day before the 1st ODI. No late entries accepted!
The series concludes on 26 January 2014. Winner will be announced the following day.

To win your player will need to score the most runs, and your run estimate will help against other contestants who voted the same player. Obviously if no one votes for the actual player who scores the most, it will be the closest vote to the player with the most.

How to enter? 
Example. Ian from Adelaide, Australia.
Michael Clarke:  297 runs.

> Please email your name, country, and prediction to Baggygreenblog@gmail.com before Sunday 12 January 2014.

Prizes: The winner will receive a copy of Michael Hussey's "Behind the Baggy Green" DVD, as well as "Australia's Wonder Years", a 2-disc Ashes DVD set - courtesy of Roadshow Entertainment. Screenshots alongside page.

The winner will be announced via Facebook and contacted via email after the series concludes, and given 5 days to reply with their name and full postage details.
If there is no response with in that time frame, then the runner-up will be awarded the prize.

My son-in-law would love this prize as he umpires at the local cricket club.
Cricket to him is like blood in his veins.
