Ashes: 2/1 For Any Player To Receive Sledging Fine

With much discussion on Ashes morning surrounding sledging, William Hill are offering 2/1 that any player is handed a match fine for excessive sledging. 

“Michael Clarke got himself into hot water in 2013 for overstepping the relatively liberal sledging line and with tensions once again running high on the pitch someone could quite easily suffer the same fate,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
