    Probably the poms because I'm a Saffa so by default am bred to hate the Aussies (we're bred to hate the poms too but not as much).

    Then again the aussies beating the poms would probably do SA a favour in terms of holding their position atop the Test rankings. Still.

    Interesting question.

    Doubt I'll be supporting either side over the other but certainly some players over others.

    Patto, Hughes, Prior, Cowan, Clarke, KP I can get behind. PEWS probably knows who's on the top of my hated list. Him and his stupid grin. God wac he is.

    Cook, Clarke, Patto, Anderson, Siddle, Lyon, Prior, KP, Cowan, Warner and Compton. Harris and Tremlett in the unlikely event they play.

    I hope the rest don't take a wicket or score a run.

    Australia this time, I tend to be a bit of a Swing Supporter for the Ashes, but I must say I'd prefer 5 great games and an England and Wales win than Australia prevailing 1-0 in a series with lot of rain and flat pitches.

    Already 4-0 for Oz in the poll. The pommy cricketers are SO loved around the world, aren't they?
    It's the pitch, stupid.

    Australia I would imagine, since England will be huge favourites. But in reality it depends who I put money on.

    This would have been a far more interesting Poll if the options had been:

    English supporting England
    English supporting Australia
    Australian supporting England
    Australian supporting Australia
    Neutral supporting England
    Neutral supporting Australia
    English not supporting either
    Australian not supporting either
    Neutral not supporting either
    Julia Gillard

    I know most normal people tend to support their own country but I've come across one or two on here in the past who don't necessarily all the time.

    I'm supporting Cowan, Hughes, Clarke, Smith, Patto, Lyon, Harris, Siddle, Starc, Cook, Compton, Root, Prior, Swann, Anderson.

    Australia for the overall result, provided Glenn Maxwell has nothing to do with it.

    I support Australia in England and I want the series Down Under to be drawn.
