    If he stays fit Clarke is a solid shout for top runscorer.

    Jimmeh for wickets tho.

    Pretty sold on Clarke for reasons mentioned earlier. Worried about Jimmy lasting the series having seen him distinctly sub-par in Kiwiland, Broad and Finn won't hold it together over five tests, and Swann has question marks over fitness too. Saying that, it's not like an Aussie will play all five, so Swanny's my shout.

    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Ryan Harris. I could totally see him playing 5 tests in a row...

    Trott for the runs.

    At this stage (were I the Illuminati cricketing selector) it would be Siddle, Harris, Pattinson and Lyon. Bird first cab off the rank, Hilf second. SOK the logical but unlikely backup tweaker.

    After this diatribe, a quick question - is Cummins fully fit? Any chance of him getting a gig in the preceding ODIs or Twenty20s? Would be nice to gauge his progress if nothing else.

    To be honest unless he stay fit I'm very pessimistic about the ashes. I think / hope he'll play most /all of it.

    I'd consider bird for Siddle order swap ( I really don't rate siddle still) but that really wouldn't mesh with current policy & be somewhat injury prone. Pretty much agree otherwise...

    Not Cook would be my guess.

    Anderson if only because he's likelier than the Aus boys to play in all 5 tests. Swann's main problem is that I don't see him bowling on many Day 4 or 5 pitches in this series.

    As for the batting, it's hard to look beyond Clarke. Cook would be a better bet in the return series. Maybe KP as England's top scorer.
