    I can't be the only one who burst out laughing at that. That said, I've always wondered what happens to Mitchell Johnson's underwear after a hard day in the field.

    Man, imagine them getting vision of a "Bevan explosion" back in the day. As a cricketer, really detest the idea of cameras being in there.

    Heh, Bev attacks. Wouldn't mind seeing how some blokes react to an out, betting it wouldn't be a Bex and lie-down.

    EDIT: Except for Haurie.

    Nielsen's spray at Fletcher... quite amusing to see Nielsen ranting about Fletcher's record. I suppose he is correct in that Fletcher was unsuccessful in Australia, but it's not like Nielsen has the record of a world-beater. I haven't heard a lot about Nielsen in the run-up, but you'd think if Australia lost the series he'd be under a lot of pressure.

    Also, given Hauritz is apparently not good enough even to edge out Doherty, should we be worried that Swann has been studying Hauritz from last season because he's "well worth copying"?

    First couple of pages of this thread are just awesome, they truly are. Not in a 'I told you so' way (although it is good to see ****s like pasag and Got_Spin get told where to shove it ) but in showing how far we progressed in 2010. At the start of the year, people actually suspected we might drop a Test to Bangladesh, now we're arguing over whether we can become #1.

    Hilfeh, Bollinger and Hauritz eh?

    Comeback please

    Also found it funny when people replied to wfdu's post by comparing Siddle to Broad, our best seamer apparently

    Sidebottom never quite recovered properly from the effort of putting on a couple of yards in late 20s/early 30s, hope Harris won't be the same.
    Yeesh. Poor Rhino. Does rather read like me tempting fate in retrospect.

    I put all my faith in Broad a long way back as well tbf.

    What's really telling though is that everyone I've read naming an England XI in the first 5 or 6 pages (skimming through the thread to kill time til we start the SCG Masscare) has got at least 9/11 players right. Top seven spot on each time, Swann & Anderson ever-present. And tbf the other two spots have featured four players. Shows how settled we are whereas picking the Oz side from week-to-week is nigh on impossible, and that's one of the key reasons our players perform better as a team, IMO.

    But let's just say, I'll be ecstatic if Hilfenhaus looks a million dollars this Ashes and carries on averaging 50 on flat decks.


    Which qualifies as bowling well apparently.
    I'm pretty damn happy tbf.
