England to win by an innings.
I will be there and I hope to witness the following:
- Twatto golden duck
- Clarke golden duck
- KP ton
- Hussey ton
- Another epic Johnson spell
Not much to ask.

You can have the first three but no deal on the last two.
Bell has to bat 5 at Melbourne, his form is being wasted at 6.
I'd take the same team into Melbourne....something about pick your best 4 bowlers rather than 3 + token spinner...Watto, Smith and Clarke can cover if the 4 quicks need a break...
If Ponting is injured, Khawaja has to get the call....so team would be

I wonder if England are going to stick or twist with the team, I think Flower will probably put this down to that usual once a series poor batting performance and a good bowling performance by Johnson and keep the same team. Colly is a really worry now , but I doubt he would get replaced by morgan. The other would be Finn who has been expensive, I wish Broad was still here and injury free because Temlett, Broad and Anderson would be a good seam attack, who don't give too many runs and take wickets.

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Shahzad in for Finn, IMHO. With Tremmers in the team Finn's skillset is covered and Ajmal brings in pace, reverse and (potentially) runs down the order.

Never seen Shahzad bowl but he surely can't be worse than Finn who bowls so much tripe so often.
Gus Fraser must be raging.
I think if Ponting is fit to play, Khawaja should be brought in for Smith as I don't recall the MCG assisting spinners that much.. it's more a pace-friendly wicket IIRC. Batting order will have to be reshuffled, but Australia should go in with their 6 best batsmen and 4 best bowlers IMO. Relying too heavily on Watson, Hussey and Haddin to score runs at the moment.
I think Shahzad is a tremendous prospect, even if he is French - agree with Brumbers
