    Why did Jono call this 'first thread' when it clearly wasn't? I don't understand?

    It was the first/only thread when he created it; other threads got moved in here from CC afterwards.

    Matt Prior to score the most runs and Swanny to take the wickets - provided his elbow causes him no grief in the lead-up or the series itself.

    Clarke will score the most runs, and Anderson will take the most wickets, since we'll have about 8 bowlers throughout the series.

    Cook and Pattinson.

    Clarke is due a poor series and I think the English bowlers will share the wickets around pretty evenly, but Pattinson will take big hauls.

    It has as much logic as believing a coin is due to land on tails due to the fact its landed as heads the last 4 times.

    It's fair enough to believe someone's been playing way above his actual standards and it's only a matter of time he comes back down to earth.

    Though I guess it also works the other way though, someone in good form is more likely to score in an upcoming series than someone who isn't.


    carry on

    Batsmans' cricket scores aren't IID so this is incorrect. Can't be assed to import all that data to show this however. IIRC when I've seen this done before they don't have the markov property either.
