    Prediction Thread

    Hi. I know there's various threads asking for predictions, but well I thought it would be an idea if we got everybody's predictions in one go. It was done in the official thread last year, and we can all have a good chuckle at those who get it horribly wrong ie probably this blinded optimist right here. The rose tinted glasses are firmly attached to my head and will be as long as those Ashes are ours.

    Score: 2-2
    Top Runscorer: Strauss
    Top Wicket Taker: Warne

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Really liking the look of Strauss in recent games, I think he'll have a good series. Hoggard to struggle.

    Just thought I may as well add some general predictions. Am tipping Panesar for a big series, Hussey will go well but not superman well, neither Warne nor Flintoff will relive their past efforts, but they'll still put in the odd super performance
