Another draw I reckon
Yeah I don't quite think either lineup has it in them to get 20 wickets. Especially if we continue to play Swann with such contempt.

get ready for a broken ****in' arm
Yeah, hard to look past a draw considering the traditional behaviour of the Adelaide Oval track and the way the bowlers have done for both sides so far.
Yeah I can't see Adelaide being anything but a draw. Since McGrath/Warne retired the only game that got a result was 2008, whereas Brisbane was the first non-Adelaide draw in Australia since 2005.

Would seem that way but we should not forget that both batting sides do have weaknesses and have certainly not been alien to sudden collapses. Adelaide obviously might not be the one but I do think we will get some relatively low scoring tests this series.
North will hit back to back tons in Adelaide IMO, assuming he has enough time and Australia bat twice. He'll take a couple of wickets too. Backing him for a good but ultimately irrelevant performance in a drawn game that sees him hold his place for the rest of the series.

By DeusEx's logic, England should be 100 all out in both innings at Adelaide
Nah. They'll be 3/3 though.
