    Haha, indeed. Burgey, I'd swap the Katich and Clarke scores btw. A Clarke double-hundred would be a treat to watch...

    ...which is much, much more than I could say for a Katman double.

    Yup, reckon there's a chance of Aust playing 4 seamers in 1 test (i.e. Perth), regardless of how Hauritz is bowling beforehand. "Axed" mightn't be the best way of putting it, but reckon it might happen.

    Scoreline: 3-1 Australia
    Top Runscorers: Micheal Clarke for Australia and Jonathon Trott for England
    Top Wicket Takers: Mitchell Johnson for Australia and Swann for England
    Debutant/Returning Players: Usman Khawaja


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

    Result: 3-0 Australia
    Top runscorer: Ricky Ponting
    Top wicket taker: Mitchell Johnson for Australia and Swann for England
    Dumpings: Marcus North, Nathan Hauritz...not sure about England.....
    Debutant/Returning players: Usman Khawaja and Steve Smith
    Surprise Packet: I think Australia are going to bring back Steven Smith and he will be the one to destroy England. Ricky Ponting and Mitchell Johnson will hit back.

    England will once again bite the dust. They don't have the bowling attack to trouble Australia in Australia.

    This time around....for the first time in a long long time I will be supporting Australia. They seem to be looking like the West Indies of the mid to late nineties. I don't want them going down that route.

    Scoreline: 2-2-1 England retain ashes
    Top Runscorers: Kevin Pietersen / Michael Clarke
    Top Wicket Takers: Stuart Broad / Mitchell Johnson
    Debutant/Returning Players: Monty Panesar / Brad Haddin
    Surprise event: Monty To be the star of the Sydney Test in circumstances that bizarrely mirror those of the third test in the 06/07 Ashes.
