    England will not win the Ashes

    Cant tell you how I know (I have no serious information), I just have it on the authority of a Buddhist divining crystal and a close female friend.

    Well i've put a bit of money on 2-1 Australia.

    Could come down to the toss/weather at Headingly though

    Unlikely that Australia will win 2/2 tests keeping England's form, weather in mind.

    Reckon Oz will retain them with the 1-1 draw now. Can see The Oval being a high-scoring draw, so a lot depends on Leeds.

    Fair to say the standard of cricket down a notch or dozen from 2005 too.

    Slightly pessimistic on England. This seems about right.

    You never know, nobody could have predicted England would come back into the series as strongly as they did at Lord's after being under the cosh for most of the time during the Cardiff test.

    So if Australia pick the right side, then don't see any reason why they still can't win this series, with KP already out of the series, and Freddie too struggling with his fitness, ceratinly England too have plenty of problems of their own to contend with.

    If one person makes one prediction in a two-horse race and another makes a different one, each has a 50\50 chance of being right.

    By "two-horse race" I meant "if England win England win and if Australia win or it's a draw Australia win", you know.
