"The Australian cricket captain is the Prime Minister Australia wishes it had. Steve Waugh is that man, Michael Clarke is not." - Jarrod Kimber
RIP Fardin Qayyumi and Craig Walsh - true icons of CricketWeb.
If he stays fit Clarke is a solid shout for top runscorer.
Jimmeh for wickets tho.

- As featured in The Independent.
"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
- Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
Can a mod please change the title to 'third thread'
KP and Jimmeh.
Trott and Anderson
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.

Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.
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.
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...

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.
