Ladbrokes Offer Refund If Johnson Or Clarke See Off South Africa

Place a pre-match selection on the South Africa v Australia First Test and Ladbrokes will refund up to $100 of your losing stake, if Michael Clarke scores 150+ runs or Mitchell Johnson takes 10 wickets or more.

After strolling to victory over England, Australia start a much more daunting task this week – as they bring up the curtain on their Test Series in South Africa.

And with confidence the highest it’s been for a long while following their 5-0 Ashes whitewash, Australia will look to do well against the top-ranked Test side. For that reason, make sure you place your bets on the game with Ladbrokes – as they could end up refunding your losing stake.

Just sign up with Ladbrokes, bet in their First Test promotional market and, if Mitchell Johnson grabs 10+ wickets or Michael Clarke scores 150 or more runs in the First Test, they will repay up to $100 of your losing bet.

Unsurprisingly, Ladbrokes have the South Africans as 2.2 favourites to win the series. Meanwhile, Australia are currently priced at 3.2, with a Draw just behind at 3.25.

The Australian’s preperations for this series have been far from ideal – after seeing their four-day warm-up match against a South Africa Invitational XI called off because of heavy rain.

However, fast bowler Johnson insists that he is eagerly anticipating bowling in the pace-friendly South African conditions.

Johnson told sport.msn: “I’m looking forward to bowling on these wickets again… I do feel a lot more comfortable in these conditions, because I feel that they’re very similar to back home.

“The wickets over here are very good for fast bowling generally so, usually, you get a bit more pace and bounce.”

After recently claiming the Allan Border Medal for 2013, Johnson doesn’t need any extra help in taking out the opposition.

However, if the conditions are to his advantage as well, then there’s every chance he could force Ladbrokes into repaying a number of losing selections after the First Test.
