    Monty to hit a 60-ball 100 you say?

    Stranger things have happened. Actually I was thinking more along the lines of him shining with the ball.

    Scoreline: 2-2 (Australia winning at Brisbane and Perth, England claiming a victory of righteous vengance at the Adelaide and a Swann-inspired triumph at Sydney, with Melbourne a scrappy, hrad-fought draw).
    Top Runscorers: Simon Katich (overall top runscorer in series), Johnathan Trott
    Top Wickettakers: Doug Bollinger (will get Strauss at least five times in the series), Graeme Swann (overall top wickettaker, including at least 8 at Sydney)
    Dumpings: Marcus North, Steven Finn (through injury probably)
    Debutant/Returning Players: Usman Khawaja (though hopefully not from an England perspective), Chris Tremlett
    Flop of the Series: Michael Clarke
    Surprise PACKAGE: Hauritz to claim a five-for in one test and Aussie to return to the forum and proclaim that he actually thought him by far Australia's best spinning option all along.
    My Supporting XI: V Sehwag, T Iqbal, S Katich (c), K Sangakkara, S Chanderpaul, E Morgan, S Al Hasan, M Rahim (+), G Swann, D Steyn, Z Khan

    2-2

    In the runs: Ricky, as he bloody well always does - will get a stack of runs against us, but only once go on to make a face-in-the dirt epic. Hussey will score more runs than most of the world seem to think, whilst everyone else in the Aussie line up will flatter to deceive. For England, the top order will continue to misfire and Matt Prior will come through on the rails to top the runscorers list.

    Wicket Takers: On the grounds that our seamers are way too inconsistent over the course of the five Tests, I have to go for Swanny to top the tally. For the convicts, Hilfenhaus will work his arse off all series, but consistently bowl half a yard too short to get anyone out (let me be the first person ever to compare him to Corey Collymore), whilst Mitch will somehow contrive to top the lists having sent down his usual mish-mash of jaffas and ****e.

    Dumpings: Kevin Pietersen will find himself on the outer by the time my plane lands in Melbourne having failed to cross fifty all tour. Eoin Morgan will then come in and make a century in his first knock, before failing to make double figures in either subsequent innings and being nicknamed "Northy", who retains his Baggy Green due to the fact that he has some unbelievably compromising photos of Jamie Cox and Mitchell Johnson's mum.

    New Blood: Tremlett will almost certainly play a Test match when one of our pace attack breaks in half: and it wouldn't surprise me to see Shahzad wheeled in from Perth when another leg falls off. Khawaja appears to deserve a crack for the Aussies, but I expect to see Steve Smith play more often than Haley Joel Hauritz.

    WTF: an injury to Matt Prior means I need to take the gloves for the final glorious session at Sydney. Back in reality, Tremlett retains his place having come in for whoever ends up injured. North to make one score between 30 and 80 and stun us all.

    Agree with Bell. He will flop.

    Being serious,has anyone thought they may have got their prediction wrong after the way the Aussies keep losing?

    I know it is a different format but it is still the majority of the same players and losing becomes a habit.

    Whatever you think this is hardly ideal preparation for the 25th.

    I know England need to show form yet but as it stands at the moment they look the confident side who are relaxed and know their roles and Australia are scratching round looking for the right formula.Such a reverse in roles from the last 3 or 4 ashes series in Australia and we all know how they ended up.

    Us in 1986/7 comes to mind.

    As for predictions:

    Score: 2-2 draw thus England retain blah blah..

    Top Runscorers: Ricky Ponting overall; Ian Bell for England

    Top Wicket Takers: Mitchell Johnson, so good on home conditions, overall; Stuart Broad for England

    Failures: Have a feeling Steven Finn might get dropped - not playing too badly but because Tremlett is more useful at this stage, also Colly might have a tough time; Hauritz at some point

    Returning: Tremlett, Morgan; Siddle

    Surprise Packages: Marcus North will be very good and consistent ; Belly

    Another prediction:

    If the Aussies lose, expect the Australian media to blame it on the amount of people from different countries in the England side.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    You keep trotting out this ****, but England have lost here every series since before you were born.

    Australia 2 England 1

    Leading run scorer: Ponting, is an obvious point but he really is so crucial to this series and got a nasty feeling he is going to have a good one.

    Most Wickets: Broad, will win England their test match.

    Finn to do better than a lot of people expect but Tremlett to come in and do well when someone gets injured.

    North to play every test.

    Collingwood to be dropped by the 5th test.

    Will save it for when the series starts.. Didn't realise you were older than 23.

    Note to self: stop mixing people's ages with their IQs.
