    Broad circa 2011 is exactly the sort of bowler I wouldn't want Clarke to face tbh.

    Luckily he's facing Broad v.2013.

    Honestly, as weak as the Aussie batting line is, England's quicks have been utter **** for 12 months now.

    They might not be Gilchrist and Hayden, but they are still competent cricketers.

    All the Aussie batsmen are flat track bullies, they prefer pace over spin, and they love room to play their shots (Hughes, Warner and Cowan especially), if the English quicks keep bowling mid 130's wide crap, no matter how **** the Australian batsmen are, they will go for plenty.

    They do prefer pace, yes, but really they prefer seam. Guys who swing it in good conditions will still be dangerous to this line-up even if it's not awesome stuff they're sending down.

    It's hardly Gambhiring when the Australian batting has been pish for nigh on 4 years now.

    After seeing the Aussie bats fail at home as soon as there was assistance to the bowlers there is reason for pessimism. The ball will move in England and most of the bats haven't shown they can cope with that. Ffs we made the SL medium pacers look gun. Unless they get confused by all the lefties and bowl on leg there will be problems.

    Aside from Anderson, all of England's seamers are very ordinary

    Having said that, they have the advantage of bowling at our batsmen

    I fully expect England to win the Ashes but to lose at least one test where our bowlers roll them over or Warner shows up for a cameo

    Broad most certainly isn't ordinary in England.

    Broad is a less talented version of Mitchell Johnson and the only Australians who want to see him in our Ashes squad are his mum and wife
