Highly unlikely given injury and form
Looking ok, despite form he's not far away on the tally
Quite possible if we win it
Surprised me how he's going, anyway
Panesar dropped already, Bopara possible
Unfortunately Flintoff has already taken England's only 5-fer for the series.

Most wickets? :... Anderson...Well he is three short of the pace..
Most runs? :... Strauss...YESSS!
Worst player? :... Flintoff...
Frustrating tail ender? :...Johnson ...
Surprise package? :...Ponting...
Any other ? :... Brett Lee will lose his cool on the field with his skipper...

Series Result: 3-1 Australia - Possible
Top Eng Runscorer: Bopara - Won't happen
Top Aus Runscorer: Clarke - Looking good
Top Eng Wicket-taker: Anderson - Possible
Top Aus Wicket-taker: Johnson - Will take all 20 at Edgbaston
Player of the Series: Clarke - Could happen
Surprise Packet: Haurtiz - Will average under 35 - Indeed
Dropped Player(s): Hauritz, Clark, Panesar, Cook - Heh, Hauritz/Cook won't be dropped now, Clark needs to play to be dropped...
Miscellaneous Event: KP will get out at least twice to either of Hauritz/North
Series Result: Australia 3-1 - possible but unlikely
Top Eng Runscorer: Pieterson (if fit, if not Cook) - possible, but needs big runs, especially if he's ruled out of the next test
Top Aus Runscorer: Hughes - really struggling, thought he'd be the type that would never stop scoring runs.
Top Eng Wicket-taker: Anderson - still looking solid ATS.
Top Aus Wicket-taker: Johnson - unlikely, he's bowling garbage ATS.
Player of the Series: Hughes - lol
Surprise Packet: Lee getting back into form - hasn't had the chance to.
Dropped Player(s): Bopara, Prior, Panesar, etc. - Panesar has, Prior won't, Bopara still might.
Miscellaneous Event: England getting raped in the first 3 games before Australia slow down. Australia showing that their T20 form was just a blip on the radar. England to get cocky in the media after "below average warm-up". More to come when I CBF thinking about it. - wrong on all of them.

Top Eng Runscorer: Cook - Maybe
Top Aus Runscorer: Ponting - Maybe
Top Eng Wicket-taker: Anderson - this ok
Top Aus Wicket-taker: Johnson - Unlikely
Player of the Series: Johnson - definate NO
Surprise Packet: Macdonald - thought he'd play
Dropped Player(s): Swann, Prior, Pannesar, Collingwood, Onions, Lee
Miscellaneous Event: England selectors to panic, chop and change the team and look to pick players from Australian State second XIs - NO
A couple of "Maybes" the best of my sorry lot!

Not looking good so far, especially as he might miss games, but you never rule him out.Top Eng Runscorer: KP Pietersen
Not yet OOTQ.Top Aus Runscorer: Brad Haddin
Still quite possible.Top Eng Wicket-taker: James Anderson
Still possible, despite it all.Top Aus Wicket-taker: Mitchell Johnson
I don't do this frippery.Player of the Series:
Dunno if he's really surprised anyone yet, but he's gone damn well.Surprise Packet: Brad Haddin
MSP has indeed been picked as a first-choice and discarded, Lee hasn't yet, Onions hasn't yet been dropped but hasn't looked extraordinarily unlikely to either.Dropped Player(s): if MSP, Lee and Onions play any Tests as first-choice (which is possible to near-certain) then I can quite see 'em being dropped. Also find it conceivable though not out-and-out likely that Prior and Cook might go.
None yet.Miscellaneous Event (AKA random wildcard): two cases of on-a-hat-trick with a hat-trick resulting in neither.

Top Eng Runscorer: Strauss looking good
Top Aus Runscorer: M Hussey unlikely - needs a coupla tons
Top Eng Wicket-taker: Anderson Odds on
Top Aus Wicket-taker: Siddle Probably not
Player of the Series: M Hussey Highly unlikely
Surprise Packet: Marcus North at 6 Possibly, arguably Hilf has been betta
Dropped Player(s): England's third seamer (Onions?) Mixed up with Panesar obv
Miscellaneous Event: Ponting hit on the other cheek by a Stuart Broad bouncer Mite need Harmy for this to happen
Top Eng Runscorer: Strauss Looking good...
Top Aus Runscorer: Ponting Still possible....
Top Eng Wicket-taker: Swann Well, my jinx seems to be working...
Top Aus Wicket-taker: Johnson Seem to have put the mockers on him, but you never know he might still do it.
Player of the Series: Johnson Can't see this happening...
Surprise Packet: Hauritz. Will bowl quite decently and would play his part nicely, might even chip in with some handy runs down the order.
Dropped Player(s): Lee, Sidebottom, Collingwood Let's make that Bopara, Broad and Siddle
