    Dumpings - Mid-series: North, Hussey, Hauritz. End-series: Ponting.
    Debutant/Returning players - Xavier Doherty
    Surprise Packet - Mark Nicholas will win an award for his commentary, and will be knighted in the Xmas honours list in 2011.
    4-0 - not bad, forgot about Johnson knowing how to bowl in Perth.
    Runscorer - who said no-one expected Cook to do well?! Watto not too far off.
    Wickettaker - Well was always going to be Jimmy, no-brainer. Watto should have bowled more.
    Dumpings - well at least I got North, Hussey way off, Hauritz should have started the series anyway. Ponting may well yet leave.
    Debutant - Should have had more in here!
    Mark Nicholas - Time will tell.

    Someone might tot up who's done the best with their predictions, but on the face of it these seem the most accurate

    Dumping - Finn, Pieterson, Hussey after the WACA test.
    Debutant - Morgan to slot back into 6, Khawaja to take Hussey's, O'Keefe to chose which player's spot he'll take from a lucky dip at the Christmas dinner.
    Surprise - A 6th Test.
    - Scoreline right but to the wrong team
    - LOL at Watto. So close.

    Rest was meh.

    Top Runscorers: Kevin Pietersen, Michael Clarke - Pietersen a reasonable call, Clarke just dire
    Top Wicket Takers: Mitchell Johnson, James Anderson - Both correct
    Dumpings: Marcuss North, Nathan Hauritz, Steven Finn - All correct
    Debutant/Returning Players: Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith. Tremlett will come in for Finn after the 2nd Test - All correct, with the exception of who Tremlett came in for and why
    Suprise Package: Ian Bell will ton up twice in the series. - Reasonable. Tonned up at Sydney and could have tonned up at Brisbane or Adelaide had circumstances differed

    Some staff member called Tom Coghlin made a very accurate set of predictions in the Ashes HQ

    Not a particularly successful bunch of predictions there, in fact I barely tipped anything correctly.

    Sounds intriguing. I can't find the piece though. Never mind, I'm sure he was spot-on as usual.
