    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.

    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.
    5-0

    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.

    No, India drew there in 2008. Sehwag got that 2nd innings 150+. If Sehwag gets big 2nd innings runs on day 5, you know the track is still pretty damn good for batting..

    Seriously though, it was a super knock as we were in a bit of strife at that point.

    Was talking about the New Zealand game. Knew the India game was drawn.

    It's not good news for us if Adelaide is a draw...What if England then win one of the next three tests? Means we would have to win the remaining two to get back the Ashes, which, unless major changes to the line-up are made, I can't see happening. I think we need to win in Adelaide to win the Ashes.

    Morgieb is saying that this was the first non-Adelaide draw in Australia since 2005. The match that India drew in 2008 was in Adelaide.

    No, I was responding to the part where he said "Since McGrath/Warne retired the only game that got a result was 2008.." and thought about the Aus-India match, forgot about the Aus-NZ match later that year.

    By DeusEx's logic, England should be 100 all out in both innings at Adelaide

    Nah. They'll be 3/3 though.
