    I want England to win but have to back Australia. I believe it will be far closer than 07 but could well see Australia winning 2-1 or 2-0. England are still trying to fit their team tobether and work out who is best where and such like. While the Australian side does have a few changes to it I would say they are a far more settled side and I think that will give them the edge.

    5-0 given good weather imo. Just can't see England bowling Australia out twice in any match and the batting will crumble at least once a test. Can see England losing one after declaring in the first innings though

    Telling that it has definite signs of a d00plicate.

    But certainly Precamb seems more likely than SW\BLE.

    That bet is pretty safe based not on the ability of the English cricket team but English whether.

    In all seriousness though, 5-0 has only ever happened about three times hasn't it? Don't fancy the chances of lightning striking twice so soon and really don't think this Australia team is quite out of the absolute elite like the one that did a number on us in 06/07

    Twice. Warwick Armstrong in 1921 and just recently.

    The worst scoreline in England is 4-0: the Invincibles and '89 (a six-Test series)

    Worth remembering that the '89 four-nil would almost certainly have been six-nil but for rain. And this too in one of the driest, sunniest summers on record in the UK.

    I was also pretty sure that the return series to (either before or after) the BaggyGreenWash was also a 4-0 TBH, but it's most unlike Haakon to get factual details wrong, so I presume I'm recalling incorrectly.

    One interesting thing is has there ever been an Ashes in England of five or six Tests where there were no drawn matches? (There was also a four-Test one in 1975 of course but I know beyond doubt there were three draws there, although one was caused by the pitch being vandalised).

    Nup, 3-0 in 90/91. Draw at Sydney (despite e e hemmings and the Cat bowling 78 of 89 overs and taking 8 between them) to take the Ashes by the Third Test, then a draw in Adelaide to seal the won series.

    Suppose he probably thinks that was 5-0 as England had no right to win that Test

    No, no, wasn't referring to 1989 (I'm very well-versed in 1990/91 and that infamous SCG game - why on Earth Gooch didn't bring back Malcolm the minute the rank rabbits Rackemann, Reid and Alderman were at the crease I'll never know), was referring to the one that actually was - in Australia in the 1920s, I forget whether it was '20/21 or '21/22 or what. There was a series in England, right before or right after, that was also almost a BaggyGreenWash - and I think it was four-nil.

    Of course, how on Earth could I forget that?

    A rare Test where rain gave a side the chance to win rather than draw. Almost certainly would've been a five-nil had lost play been make-up-able. Mind, England should never, ever have lost that Fifth Test either.
