    Well not long now,next week and we are up and running

    2-1 to England is my prediction,don't think it will be the whitewash some are predicting

    Trott top scorer
    Swann top bowler

    As for the Aussies

    Can only see Clarke being top dog on the batting front
    And James pattinson top wicket taker

    Bring it on.

    Edit

    If anyone can predict the five outcomes as i have just done
    Theres a £25 cash prize to the winner
    Just for a bit of fun :)

    Nope, don't care when they're in Australia. The time of year they're played plus the time difference means I can't follow them properly, so I don't bother.

    3-0 England, think there will be a couple of tight tests but that we will win quite comfortably.

    In terms of batsmen I really think KP will have a great series and top score (I expect Root to do well under the pressure too). And based on his form of late I think I have to go with Jimmy to be top wicket taker.

    For the Aussies it is hard to look past Clarke, the only player that could play in the England side in terms of talent from the Aussies. Pattinson is young and will get stick so could go either way despite him being their most promising bowler. Go for Starc top bowler for the Aussies.

    Cook and Jimmy. Clarke and Starc.

    3-1 to us I reckon. The Aussies aren't as bad as has been made out, they have a fairly decent attack, particularly if this fast tracked leg spinner is any good.

    As an Aussie I've got a feeling I'll be staying away from this thread for the next couple of months haha. Still looking forward to the series though.
