    Great call on Trem.

    Yet another to show no faith in Cook, mind.

    Not too bad? That's miles off - your pick for top wicket takers are averaging 1 wicket per match!

    Trott and Tremlett calls were particularly gun though, and he's still in the frame with the scoreline he picked. Got North's dumping too but that was basically inevitable.

    2-2 - still on
    Top runscorer - Shane Watson, Bell for the Poms - Watto is 2nd, Bell is 5th (though still averaging 50+) Neither are really in it.
    Top wicket taker- Johnson , Swann - Johnson is second and in it while Swann is 4th and still in it albeit a long shot
    Dumpings - Haurie, Tremlett? - Yes and oh my no. WAG
    Returning/Debutant - Hughes - yes
    Surprise packet - North YOU ****ING HEARD ME - I'm sure he did something surprising, lasting a Test more than he should have?
    Direbirds FTW!

    Was right about Finn being dropped, and Tremlett and Siddle playing.

    So very very wrong about the rest. Especially Cook being dropped.

    Got the first one wrong; second and third will likely be wrong as well, although Graeme Swann might eclipse James Anderson on what is likely to be a spin-friendly pitch at Sydney.

    Dumpings - Siddle, Doherty, Finn
    Debutant/Returning players - O'Keefe, someone in the 17 will be "injured" O'Keefe to replace them in the squad and then Doherty in the team. Smith will get a run. Obviously Bollinger to get a go. Tremlett will get a game for us.
    Surprise Packet - Prior will gun it. Hussey to be your third best batsman.
    Still in for series result.

    Picked the wrong left handed opener to back it would seem. Still think Katich would've come good had he not got injured, wouldn't be close to Hussey though.

    Jimmeh Bollinger to take 14 this Test in an England 6 wicket win.

    Siddle was on the verge of being dropped for a while, Lolherty. Pleased with the Finn call. NFI why I left off North.

    Smith, Bolly and Tremmers all right.

    Prior's not had many chances and has been pretty disappointing when he has batted. Last innings was a sign of what he can do and he's been pretty awesome behind the sticks. Hussey call wasn't all bad either, people calling for him to be dropped and I picked him to come good, even if he did surpass expectations. Has been one of your only 3 batsmen to step up though.

    Debutant/Returning Players: Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith. Tremlett will come in for Finn after the 2nd Test
    Suprise Package: Ian Bell will ton up twice in the series.
    Scoreline - spot on just now.
    Runscorers - Pietersen, while wrong, isn't a shocking call. Clarke on the other hand, is.
    Wicket takers - Johnson in 2nd place for the Aussies, Anderson was so obvious if England were to do well, can't believe how many people tipped Swann or Broad.
    Dumpings - all correct
    Debutant/returning players - Khawaja has been in 2 squads so may yet be correct. Smith is a yes. Got Tremlett coming in after Adelaide correct, even if the circumstances were different to what I predicted
    Suprise Package - Bell may yet ton up twice at Sydney, might have already tonned up at Brisbane and Adelaide had circumstances been slightly different. Hasn't been a dire call.

    Debutant/Returning players - Allan Border from the desperate convicts
    Surprise Packet - wdfu_ben91 returns to congratulate England
    Scoreline looks spot on. KP and Twatto reasonable but off.

    Wicket takers miles off.

    Swann, despite being the highest wicket taker for England, will average over 33.


    Trott and Johnson being second best and Swann averaging 35 are the only ones half-right.
