RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
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.
also cook will be facing massive pressure and media scrutiny after the first couple of losses
