    Watson scores 50-100 another 3-4 times. Cook gets 200 early in the series. Anderson gets 5/150 a couple times

    Exactly. Jonathan Trott will make 2 Centuries also.

    To break the train of disgustingly optimistic unEnglish posts I predict the following:

    Trott to get out to Warner's part time spin on 3 occasions.
    Prior to miss 7 stumping opportunities.
    Broad to beam Pattinson 3 balls in row and get taken out of the attack. Pattinson to respond with a beamer to Broad that injures him and rules him out of the series.
    Australia to be awesome and win 3-0 and England to suck balls.

    I put a bit on Watson to score the most runs in the series a few weeks ago. Just feel like this is his time and he'll make at least one really massive score. Admittedly turning 80-odd into something big has never been his strong suit, but I don't think he'll fail often.
    I know a place where a royal flush
    Can never beat a pair

    - Finn to hit the bowlers stumps more often than the batsmans stumps.

    - Swann to be a factor in one Test, but for the most part he'll be largely ineffective with the ball.

    - Lyon will get dropped/rested in at least one Test. yessssssssssss

    - Prior will have a great series with the gloves and bat.

    - The series (not the Ashes perhaps) will be alive going into the final Test.

    - Mitchell Starc will surprise many with his extra pace and subtle swing.

    - Mark Ramprakash wont get a call up. Yessssssssssssssss

    - Someone will come up with a Joe Root pun and think they are the funniest ****er on the planet. anyone??
    Looking okay so far..

    I'll make a Root pun when he scores a century/gets dismissed (whatever comes first, also assuming I'm still up at the time).
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    - Captain Cook and Captain Clarke to both average under 50. YES

    - Rogers to play all 5 Tests and score in excess of 400 runs much to Benchmark's dismay. Close but no cigar

    - Brumby to start up a last man standing for the Ashes. Unlucky, Cabinet did a solid job though.

    - Finn to hit the bowlers stumps more often than the batsmans stumps. Nil all bore draw

    - Swann to be a factor in one Test, but for the most part he'll be largely ineffective with the ball. His 9/122 was his big match, he was effective throughout the series though, so wrong.

    - Lyon will get dropped/rested in at least one Test. Yessss

    - Prior will have a great series with the gloves and bat. #harrisface

    - The series (not the Ashes perhaps) will be alive going into the final Test. - wrong,

    - Mitchell Starc will surprise many with his extra pace and subtle swing. meh

    - Mark Ramprakash wont get a call up. yesss

    - Someone will come up with a Joe Root pun and think they are the funniest ****er on the planet. yesss, I think

    He's a putz.
