    With neither side looking like bowling the other out twice, I predict five draws and a first day crowd in Sydney of 826.
    This leads to CA going into financial crisis and withdrawing from international cricket to focus on it's new role as the latest IPL franchise.

    I see many people here had Johnson in their wish list as the leading wicket taker
    If the first test is anything to go by, it will be 2-1 England come january 2011.
    As Daryll Cullinan was on his way to the wicket, Shane Warne told him he had been waiting 2 years for another chance to humiliate him.

    "Looks like you spent it eating," Cullinan retorted.

    Ha, it's definitely made up some of it. Not sure whether it's a good thing that my post in here was the first thing I thought of when I saw that P Siddy had taken a hattrick, tbh.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Before this series got underway, I figured England were marginally favourites to keep The Ashes, for two reasons: Graeme Swann and just needing a drawn series. Those two arguements, imho, outweigh the fact that the Aussies play on home soil.

    For the rest, I would think both teams were fairly equal. Having the benefit of having seen 8 days of play out of a possible 25, things look rather different. If at this point England could select Aussie players too, whom would they pick? None? Maybe MHussey, possibly Haddin, but otherwise?

    Maybe it's a bit harsh, but the last week has taught me Australia are rightfully #5 in the test rankings. India, SL, SA and England simply have better teams!


    England to win the series 4-0! Rain permitting........

    Surprise - Johnson, will take plenty of wickets and bat a lot better as well.
