An outstanding moment when the God of Cricket, the little master, the master blaster, the record breaker, the record maker uuuphhh! lots of lots words will not cover a inch of his greatness. It's really impossible for any cricketer to achieve this milestone in upcoming future. God made it again! At the age of 37 Mr. Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar scored 50th Test Century! A HALF CENTURY of the CENTURY! Incredible!

France captain Guy Forget was fooling no one when he described his team as underdogs ahead of the 2010 Davis Cup final. Serbia might have home advantage and the outstanding player in their ranks, but davis cup tennis betting pundits note how the French route to the final has been so smooth an impressive that Forget’s statement represents little more than an attempt to increase the pressure on the hosts.

If the naming of an initial 17 man squad raised eyebrows, the dropping of Nathan Hauritz in favour of Xavier Doherty caused just as much surprise.

Hauritz has hardly set the world alight since breaking into the team three years ago, but he did have the unenviable task of following Shane Warne and would have considered himself a likely starter in Brisbane next week.

Doherty meanwhile has only taken three five-wicket hauls in first-class cricket and has a bowling average of 48. However, it appears his inclusion is a direct response to Kevin Pietersen's apparent weakness to left arm spinners.

Pietersen was clean bowled by Steve O'Keefe of Australia A last week, the latest in a line of left arm bowlers who have profited when bowling to the South African born star.

When he is on form Pietersen can be a destructive upper order batsmen and is capable of tipping the game in England's direction at any given moment, something Australia are all too aware of and the Ashes betting tips reflect this.

The inclusion of Doherty therefore highlights the importance they are placing on getting Pietersen out early, and it is up to him no to prove he can handle left arm spinners. Anyone looking to bet on top England batsman should bear in mind they may be gambling on KP sorting out this little problem.

If he can then he will join an England upper order in fine form heading to the Gabba for the first Test.

Ian Bell joined Alastair Cook and Andrew Strauss in hitting a century in the warm up games, while Paul Collingwood scored a gutsy 89.

If Pietersen can eradicate the mistakes in his game that make him vulnerable to spin then England will have a solid run-filled batting line up capable of putting the Aussies under pressure.{jcomments on}

Last summer’s painful series loss in England will be the only inspiration the Australian players as they attempt to regain the urn this winter. Marcus North has expressed his determination to put right the wrongs from last year’s defeat, “It would've been disappointing having that experience in 2009 and not being able to have some sort of impact on winning the Ashes back.”
