    Lets make the poms cry.

    Yeah very nice ground I go every year to the Tests and ODI's and it is just so lovely.

    This, in my view, will be Langer's last Test match.

    I agree.
    One of either Langer or Hayden has to go for Jaques.

    yea got that feeling as well, even if JL doesn't announce it soon. But its been a super career, especially over the last 5 years or so when he turned his game around in the 2001 Ashes.

    I dont get that feeling I just beleive now Hayden has got that century the selectors cant really kick him out and Langer has had an alright series.

    Might be putting my hand up for the Greigy here, but imo, Langer will wait till after the match to announce his retirement in order to not take the spotlight away from McGrath and Warne. He was definitely saying goodbye, the way he was waving to the crowd in Melbourne, I reckon.

    I can't wait for the match btw. England will come out firing to try and avoid the whitewash whilst Australia will be trying to enforce it. My prediction is for this to be the match of the series.

    My prediction is for the SCG to be good for the pacers, with overcast conditions.

    EDIT: In fact, England have a lot going for them this Test. The ball normally swings around and is good for spinners, smaller boundaries, decent team dynamics, nothing to lose.

    Doesn't smaller boundaries mean better for Australia, Hayden, Ponting, Clarke, Symonds, Gilchrist and Warne are all strokemakers.

    It means Flintoff and Pietersen are going to hit 6, not hole out to long on.
    Or something.
