    4-1 to Australia.

    How many England players will play in all 5 Tests?
    Harmison and Flintoff will obviously be injured at some point. Giles will wrongly be selected ahead of Monty for the First Test so neither spinner will make all 5. Bell will hardly make a run and be dropped after two Tests. Jones is playing in the First Test but won't last the Series. Anderson and Mamood, no chance. That leaves possibly Trescothick, Strauss, Cook, Pietersen or Hoggard.
    I predict that only Strauss, Cook and Pietersen will play in all 5 Tests.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Score: 4-1 (Australia)
    Top Runscorer: Damien Martyn(Australia)- back in form, cant see him having 2 poor series in a row against England. i expect bell and ponting to be amongst the runs as well
    Top Runscorer: Andrew Strauss(England)- there isnt another batsmen in this England side who will like these conditions better.
    Top Wicket Taker: Warne(Australia)- might not have the best average but will probably take the most wickets. I think Lee will have a good series as well.
    Top Wicket Taker: Flintoff(England)- cant think of anyone else.
    Most catches (wk excluded): Matthew Hayden-pretty obvious in my book, hes the only player whos in the slips for the fast bowlers and for Warne and Macgill)
    Biggest surprise: Paul Collingwood- ok i really like him for his grit, if he plays im certain he'll play at least one quality back to the wall inning even if he doesnt do too much else
    Biggest disappointment: Glenn Mcgrath(I think England will have his number for this series, there will be plans all over the place on how to deal with him). Id put Flintoff down there for his batting alone as i would be extremely surprised if he succeeded, SA had him wrapped around their fingers when he toured there using the short ball policy in similar conditions. Im also tempted to pencil in Hussey, because not only is he due one poor series but he will have a tough time against Flintoff around the wicket and the 2 spinners(im uncertain about his ability against spin). Further im sure Fletcher has a plan against him that no one has used before.
    Man of the series: Martyn
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Im changing my tip back to 2-2.

    Lee, once again, looks ordinary when batsmen go after him.

    Moreover, this is not the same England team of tours past.

    Make it 5-0, Cook the biggest disappointment, Clarke the biggest surprise, and most catches for Haydos.

    Close enough now to make a sensible prediction:
    4-1 Australia.
    Top Runscorer: Ponting
    Top Wicket Taker: Lee
    Most Catches (wk excluded): Hayden
    Biggest Surprise: Pasener not playing a test while the series is "live"
    Biggest Disappointment: Above
    Man of the Series: Ponting.

    England to win in either Melbourne or Sydney, but nowhere else. God knows, it don't rain down here much anymore, so I'm predicting no draws.

    Score: 5-0 Australia

    Top Runscorer: Bell, but he won't get those sort of runs.

    Top Wicket Taker: Giles (47)

    Most catches (wk excluded): Geriant Jones,...you said wk excluded didn't you?

    Biggest surprise: In the fifth test Bell actually manages to finally not poo his pants when Warne is introduced...instead he merely produces a hershy squirt

    Biggest disappointment: England

    Man of the series: Trescothick
