    Will England Choke in 2006/07 Ashes And wats your best aussieXI

    I Believe England's 2005 triumph was a fluke on their home turf. When the Poms come down under they are gonna cop some, for example 90 000 Melbournians on Boxing Day.
    England past away performances have shown they cant play away from home Aussies to win 5-0. Reasons Why?
    England Lack in openers, Trescothik hasn't scored a ton against Aussies, Strauss struggled against leg spin
    W/Keeper Jones poor glovemen/batsmen need some new talent
    Bowlers, not much swing down under
    Aussie tracks compleelty differnt to pommy tracks, WACAs steepling bounce, adelaide and Sydney turning wickets
    Middle order if aussies had of taken catches in 2005 Pietersen would average about 15 as would Flintoff, and Bell shouldn't even be playing county cricket
    Final reason, Brett Lee has matured and is the best bowler in the world, is bowling quicker than ever.
    The Aussie team i think for 2006/07 will Be:
    M.Hayden
    J.Langer
    R.Ponting
    M.Cosgrove
    M.Hussey

    I'll limit myself to suggesting that Chris Hinton is now no longer the CW forumite least capable of forming a coherent sentence, and allow everyone else to rip into the rubbish contained within the inelegance.

    I think England might even manage 5 an over for a series against that bowling lineup (unless someone manages to wheel McGrath out for a bowl for most of the series)

    Right, someone's gotta deconstruct this rubbish, it might as well be me.

    When the Poms come down under they are gonna cop some, for example 90 000 Melbournians on Boxing Day. - the Barmy Army will outsing them all. That's not a joke - Australian crowds might make noise when there's a wicket or a six, but the Barmy Army don't shut up for entire days.

    England past away performances have shown they cant play away from home Aussies to win 5-0 - by the same token, Australian performances against the current England side have shown that they are incapable of winning a series against them. Past performances mean nothing, in cricket or any other sport.

    England Lack in openers - yes, three of them averaging over 45 with one having 5,500 Test runs to his name is a real gaping hole.

    Trescothik hasn't scored a ton against Aussies - no, but he was England's second top run-scorer last summer and averaged 43.10. Also he did score 90 on one occasion.

    Strauss struggled against leg spin
    W/Keeper Jones poor glovemen/batsmen need some new talent
    - only remotely valid points you make. However, Strauss still managed to make two centuries last summer and Jones' keeping is improving.

    Bowlers, not much swing down under
    Aussie tracks compleelty differnt to pommy tracks, WACAs steepling bounce, adelaide and Sydney turning wickets
    - Reverse swing, which is what Australia were unable to handle last summer, happens everywhere. Aussie tracks are different, yes - but that will mean more bounce and pace for the likes of Flintoff, Jones and Harmison as well as the likes of Lee and (s******) Tait.

    Middle order if aussies had of taken catches in 2005 Pietersen would average about 15 as would Flintoff - patently not true. Pietersen was not dropped all series until the Oval, and Flintoff was not dropped all series.

    Bell shouldn't even be playing county cricket - yes, a first-class average of 48.84 in 2005, even including his poor Ashes, is clearly unacceptable. More than Justin Langer's averaging this Australian season by some distance, incidentally.

    Final reason, Brett Lee has matured and is the best bowler in the world, is bowling quicker than ever. - Brett Lee's last 20 Tests: 83 wickets @ 34.45, with an economy rate of 3.77. That's actually worse than his career statistics overall.

    M.Cosgrove - does not have a hope in hell of playing in the Ashes. If he does, Australia will have either had a distastrous 2006 season, or will be in the midst of a huge injury crisis.

    That's all I can think of at the moment.

    On the subject of how England went against Pakistan, Bell averaged 52.16.

    The fact that Langer had a year off due to injury has no relevance to this season's stats anyway, as he clearly hasn't been injured this season - he's been playing!

    As for not letting the Barmy Army into the MCG, I forgot - they'd prefer to let in more Aussie fans so the England players can have beer cans full of urine thrown at them. Still, at least we don't have any black players, eh? God knows what'd happen to them.

    Brett Lee's ODI performances are a stupid way to infer that he's the best bowler in the world. He's one of the best ODI bowlers in the world, possibly - but in Tests he's inconsistent at best.

    I will be the forty-seven-thousandth to say that I am not racist, and just because my location says Australia doesn't mean I heckled Murali or the South Africans from the stands.

    Yes, I know. I'm not accusing you of anything, or any of the other Australians on this forum.

    But the fact remains that Australian crowds do have a pretty terrible track record - they say every country has its idiots, and that's true, so I guess in Australia the idiots must go to the cricket, rather than the football like they do over here.

    Dont talk rubbish. How was it a fluke? England could easily have won by more... and after the first test never looked the worst side.

    Things will be tougher for them this time round and they probably wont be retaining the Ashes, but fully fit they should win them back in the next home series.

    England in England is a extremely tough challenge for any team, as the touring sides will see this summer and have for the past 2.
