    Find it too hard to pick our bowling attack. Ah **** it, will have a go anyway

    Strauss
    Cook
    Key
    Pietersen*
    Bell
    Collingwood
    Flintoff
    Foster
    Anderson
    Harmison
    Panesar

    Sidebottom & Jones in with a shout, can't see Broad playing another Test for a while though, if all goes to plan

    AUSTRALIA

    Shane Watson


    ENGLAND

    James Anderson




    If Jimmy bowls to Watto in a test match I'll cry the manliest tears that have ever been cried.

    Half the potential fast bowling attack will be injured during the winter. A bit surprised to see two line-ups with Foster batting at 6. He's a number 8 at Test level, 7 at a stretch, but not 6 in a million years.

    Well I chose him on the basis of his keeping and stuck him at 8

    I am quite scared by the prospect of Harmison batting at 8

    He is the best keeper if you discount Read and he should be selected but he can't bat in the top 6........number 8 would be ideal but it's dependant on Flintoff being able to bat at 6 and Broad being in the team on merit for his bowling and batting at 7......even that looks a bit weak.

    Too difficult to rely on fitness, as well as catches being caught, to know TBH. There are but 2 players from England who I'd feel routinely confident about their selection: Pietersen (as captain) and Cook. For Australia, I'd feel reasonably confident about Ponting (as captain), Jaques, Hussey, Clarke, Clark and Brett Lee, but again that's pretty well it.

    Watto because he's Aussie, but I'd not begrudge Jimmy. When he knocked Watto over in the '06 CT I was happy for him. Even if Watto was on fire and it kept low.

    It probably depends on circumstance, if Watto was in the 90's I'd be fuming. Would almost disown Jimmy.

    Australia:

    1. Hayden
    2. Jaques
    3. Ponting
    4. Hussey
    5. Clarke
    6. Symonds
    7. Haddin
    8. Lee
    9. Casson
    10. Clark
    11. Johnson

    Doubt there will be any major changes. Only changes I can see is Katich for Hayden (due to injury), another spinner for Casson and possibly, but don't think this as likely to happen as everyone thinks it will, but Bollinger for Johnson.

    England:

    1. Cook
    2. Strauss
    3. Bell
    4. Pietersen
    5. Collingwood
    6. Flintoff
    7. Davies
    8. Sidebottom
    9. Anderson
    10. Harmison
    11. Panesar

    Talks about 05 will be paramount prior to the series, hence a similar batting line up/positons here. Harmison has bought himself a few more games.

    Bolters: watch out for Samit Patel...you heard it here first.

    Although Bopara, Key and Shah are all in contention. Can't see Bell getting dropped, hence Collingwood is the main to view and see if he falters. Davies really was a pick and hope, I was thinking Musturd, but I think he might get picked for India and fail.

    What I would like to see England:

    1. Cook
    2. Strauss/Key/Vaughan
    3. Shah
    4. Pietersen
    5. Bopara
    6. Bell
    7.
    8. Flintoff
    9. Sidebottom
    10. Anderson
    11. Panesar

    Look, it wouldn't surprise me if it happened, as much as I disagree with it. Remember we're picking who we think will be selected, not who we want.

    I don't think there's any chance Foster would bat above Flintoff. I was surprised enough that Ambrose did
