    Don't really care. Who takes predicion threads seriously, I was just putting down what I wanted to happen.
    The one, the only CW Black

    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Not entirely talking out of my arse there, the Hussey call aside. 3-1 still on (although 4-1 & 5-0 still are too), Ponting good shout, Fred still there (ankle permitting), 3 catches from Hayden, coupla 50s from Bell (although Clark or Clarke prob in box seat at the moment) & Punter warmish fav for MOTS.

    Panesar I blame selection so no qualms there, and still confident on Warne and the result.

    I thought that I should front up for my awful selections for most runs/wickets. I have an excuse for Strauss, with the bad decisions, but Lee was a terrible pick whichever way you look at it, I should have known. I'm pretty sure Ponting fielding in the slips and at bat pad for Warne hasn't taken a catch yet either Did I mention how much I like Stuart Clark?

    TBH, despite Lee being a bit unlucky, it's pretty obvious England play him pretty well, it's not as if it's only a few games against us. He has the odd spell where he hits it, but generally he struggles against us. Certainly he's not someone any of our batters are worried about facing, unlike Mcgrath, Clark and Warne

    Strauss - deadset disaster
    Warne - must be up there now musn't he?
    No idea who leads the catches chart
    Anderson, see Strauss
    McGrath, see Strauss and Anderson
    Flintoff, see Strauss, Anderson and McGrath

    Top Runscorer: Matthew Hayden Started poorly, but surprisingly jumped to fifth by the end
    Top Wicket Taker: McGrath Nope - had a "good" series though, coming in at third.
    Most catches (wk excluded): Matthew Hayden I think he might have tied this with Collingwood?
    Biggest surprise: Tresco/Anderson Well, Tresco pulled a surprise, other than that, er, meh.
    Biggest disappointment: Bell Fought hard, didn't have a great one, but I'd say Cook in the end. Harmy was terrible, but that was always on the cards.
    Man of the series: McGrath Nope - winner not announced yet, but I'd think it'd be outta Clark and Ponting.
    Not much dead on target, but could've been worse.

    Biggest surprise: Giles Was only a suprise how dire he was
    Biggest disappointment: Langer Ish but not really, guess it was the England bowling attack
    Man of the series: Pietersen if he gets in his groove. Failing that it'll probably be Ponting. And it probably was Ponting

    Biggest disappointment: Martyn Well, he only played two games
    Man of the series: Hayden Meh...

    Just thought I may as well add some general predictions. Am tipping Panesar for a big series could've been better, Hussey will go well but not superman well just wrong, neither Warne nor Flintoff will relive their past efforts, but they'll still put in the odd super performance fair call really
    Not the best really
