    Cook and Anderson are the safe bets for England but for those who like a flutter go for Trott and Swann.

    As for Australia the bookies have Clarke (by a mile) and Pattinson as favourites. Should the pressure of captaincy and expectation be too much for Clarke chuck some money on Haddin at 10-1. The bowling?...go with the odds and say Pattinson.

    Anderson a safe option to take approximately 20 wickets @ the cost in the mid-to-late twenties for each but I don't think it'll be him. He's still the 'safest' option, though considering the fact that the other main contenders are plagued with inexperience, injuries and inconsistency.

    I'll be boring and just straight out back Cook for the batting honours. Clarke a good shout too but just see Cook scoring a couple of massive, Australlian soul destroying hundreds batting first on a batting track on a sunny day.

    Don't see that myself, everyone knows Australians don't have souls.

    Our bowling attack will be different, and much better, this time around. I can't see it happening to the extent it did last series.

    Ironically if Australia selected the Teletubbies in spots 1-4 they'd strengthen their lineup.

    More intelligent than Warner and Watson as well.
