    Series Result: Australia 2 - 0
    Top Eng Runscorer: Strauss
    Top Aus Runscorer: Hussey
    Top Eng Wicket-taker: Sidebottom
    Top Aus Wicket-taker: Johnson
    Player of the Series: Hussey
    Surprise Package: Hussey
    Dropped Player(s): Lee
    Miscellaneous Event: Australia win a tense Third Test by one wicket thanks to an unbeaten Mike Hussey century in which he is dropped eleven times. The Fourth Test is abandoned after Richard digs up the pitch and burns his First Chance Average manifesto into the grass. He is subsequently thrown off the Lord's balcony but survives after being caught by Geoffrey Boycott's grandmother.

    Personally, going something like:

    Series Result: Australia 2-0
    Top Eng Run scorer: Pietersen
    Top Aus Runscorer: Hughes
    Top Eng Wicket-taker: Swann
    Top Aus Wicket-taker: Siddle
    Player of the Series: Johnson
    Surprise Packet: Broad and Swann
    Dropped Player(s): Sidebottom and Monty (if they play) for England, Lee for Australia
    Miscellaneous Event: Michael Hussey to find form again, Monty won't play more than one Test, and Lee will play his last Test for Australia
    Nice thread, I didn't see this first time around.

    For me:

    Result: 2-1 England (wouldn't be a pom otherwise. Lol)
    Eng Runs: Pietersen
    Aus Runs: Hussey
    Eng WK: Anderson
    Aus WK: Johnson
    P.O.S: Pietersen and the series to be called "Pietersen's Ashes" (originality at it's peak).
    Surprise Packet: Bopara
    Drops: Lee, Hilfenhaus, Prior (literally! Ha ha)
    Misc Event: Hughes to be hit on the head from Broad, Ponting to take a stunning catch to get rid of KP on 99.
    All-Time Test XI:
    Gavaskar, Boycott, Tendulkar, G.Pollock, V.Richards, Sobers, Gilchrist (wk), Warne (c), Waqar/Wasim, Lillee, Ambrose.

    If we win the series I doubt any batsmen would have been dropped on the way, certainly not Clarke who has been great over the past couple of years (and who is undroppable).
    Rest In Peace Craigos
