    For the life of me, I don't know how people can predict that the Poms won't win a Test. Even during the 1990's, they always managed to jag a Test somewhere. This is an infinitely better team than any of those sides.

    It is a little odd, obviously Aus are favourites but they aren't the side we played last time we toured, plus England are a lot better this time too as you say.

    I think the "3-1s" are a good bet, but I'm somewhat optimistically sticking with 2-2.

    I put a 10/1 bet on the 2-1 Australia outcome myself.

    Score: 2-1 Aus
    Top Runscorer: Ponting
    Top Wicket Taker: McGrath
    Most catches (wk excluded): Strauss
    Biggest surprise: Giles
    Biggest disappointment: Langer
    Man of the series: Pietersen if he gets in his groove. Failing that it'll probably be Ponting.

    It's not that crazy. I think since the 96/97 series against WI (almost ten years), Australia have only lost around 3 tests in total in our own backyard. Granted, a couple of those were to England, but we have been near impregnable at home in recent seasons, much more so than in the 90's.

    Australia's bowling stocks are much improved since the last Ashes, and it's hardly a full strength English side, either.

    ^ with the exception of the '03 India series, heh heh... But even then, when I felt we were dominated, they only walked away with one test. It's just been very hard for the opposition to win tests in Australia for quite some time now.

    But how often does the Ashes end with a side winning no Tests? I could be wrong but I don't think it's happened since 89, and with the quality we have in our side, there's no way we'll go home empty handed.

    To be honest, I hope they don't, because I'd much rather see an exciting series than a walkover. The conservative pick is probably 3-1, but I think 3-zip is a genuine possibility. FWIW, I picked 2-1 (Aus) last Ashes, but I was fairly nervous from the outset. It feels quite different this time around.

    TBH I have no honest prediction. I have no idea how I think this series will end up, and I picked 2-2 conservatively tbh,.
