Anyone mentioned our stronger lower order yet? No, okay, there we go, I just did
And yeah yeah, Johnson has a Test match ton. But let's be honest. If we have Anderson & Onions at 10 & 11 you will NEVER bowl us out twice! And Swann at 9, he's better than Michael Clarke.
The more I think about it, the easier this series will be. 4-0 England my tip.

The ending of I am Legend
The rest is a matter of opinion and I usually hate doing player-by-player but in my view, at the time;
Taylor >>>>>> Watto (obv)
Slater = Katich (seriously, look at how many 80's and 90's they've got between them! In terms of not scoring tons, the they were separated at birth)
Ponting >>>>>>>>>>>>> Langer circa '98
Huss > M Waugh
Clarke < S Waugh
Norf >> Lehmann/Ponting circa '98/'99 (sorry Boof)
Haddin > Heals (overall, Haddin >>> Heals but Healy was in good touch then)
Overall, even if you rate M Waugh above Huss, it's at least even and I tend to think the current line-up has the edge having, y'know, actually watched the series. Either way, even if they were worse, it's a bloody tough line-up to throw them down at. No matter what, Swan won't be getting any cheap wickets in Australia.
