    Ashes Predictions Thread

    Surprised one of these doesn't exist already. Ripping the criteria from the Aus-SA series:

    Series Result:
    Top Eng Runscorer:
    Top Aus Runscorer:
    Top Eng Wicket-taker:
    Top Aus Wicket-taker:
    Player of the Series:
    Surprise Packet:
    Dropped Player(s):
    Miscellaneous Event:


    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

    Series Result: Australia 3-1

    Top Aus Wicket-taker: Johnson

    Surprise Packet: Lee getting back into form
    Dropped Player(s): Bopara, Prior, Panesar, etc.
    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.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Series Result: Australian comfortable victory. Weather too unpredictable to go for an exact scoreline.
    Top Eng Runscorer: KP Pietersen
    Top Aus Runscorer: Brad Haddin
    Top Eng Wicket-taker: James Anderson
    Top Aus Wicket-taker: Mitchell Johnson
    Player of the Series:
    Surprise Packet: Brad Haddin
    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.
    Miscellaneous Event (AKA random wildcard): two cases of on-a-hat-trick with a hat-trick resulting in neither.
