    I'd like to see Root put up the order.. Probably into 3.. I think if that can happen he'll have his way with the Aussie attack. He's a brilliant up and coming batsman and I'd like to see him contesting against Cook for highest run scorer in the series.

    Bowling wise.. No idea. Haha

    And I think all of the wicket taker suggestions were fair shouts.

    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.
    Very good from these two

    Our lack of runs coupled with resounding victory bears fruit for this theory IMO

    I don't even remember making that prediction but it's turned out as a rather good shout that actually makes me look like I know what I'm talking about so no complaints here.

    Good to see my faith in Bell was vindicated.
