    I have the benefit of hindsight of course, but every post there was as cringeworthy as the last given what we've seen

    I even made a domestic thread

    No hindsight involved Max.....they were cringeworthy comments at the time.

    There are some terrible predictions back there. But I'm glad I didn't get here earlier - I was predicting Starc would thrive in the English conditions and be the surprise packed of the series.

    I guess I should have kept that one to myself.

    LOL @ Burgey

    We should make some sort of prediction competition here for the upcoming Ashes. Something like 10 predictions allowed: 1 pt for a easy prediction. 2 pts for a middle of the road prediction, 3 pts for a far-out prediction. Predictions points to be peer-judged.

    Cook and Trott - will score heavily again.

    KP - will be up and down, but will score a big century

    Root - will start badly, then come good scoring about 400 runs.

    Bell - will prove rather difficult to get out

    Prior - won't be needed to bat much. But will mostly just get out when he does.

    Anderson - won't find it quite as easy this time

    Broad - will need to take more responsibility, and will be forced to toil beyond what he has so far in his career

    Bresnan - will be Bresnan

    Swann - will take 10 wickets at 37 - but whilst bowling quite well


    Watson - 2 eye-catching innings. But lacks substance when it matters and his bowling will completely tail-off

    Rogers - a mediocre return of 250 - 300 runs

    Clarke - will win one man of the match award, and generally bat well

    Smith - will show a couple of innings of real promise, but not go far enough

    Haddin - will enjoy a couple of swashbucking innings, with Clarke

    Warner - if he plays, will be like he was here. Eye-catching one moment, out the next

    Lyon - Ineffective, through no real fault of his own. But will bat well in the lower order

    Mitch - probably play well in 1 test , if he gets in

    Siddle - will toil and bowl respectable stuff as always. But just not get enough to put England under constant pressure
    World XI Since 1990 -

    1. Gooch 2. Dravid 3. Ponting 4. Tendulkar 5. Lara 6. Kallis 7. Gilchrist 8. Akram 9. Warne 10. Ambrose 11. McGrath

    Meh, Watson will be out at least once lbw, but will score decent runs in at least one innings. Is that cosmic latte enough?

    Watson to be out lbw and then review it is surely not allowed by anyone as it is a given.

    You always have to take it that one step further, don't you? What about "surely not allowed by anyone as it is a given." BUT looks into his hand mirror to check his hair and asks himself to agree to review it anyway, then walks off blowing kisses to himself.

    Ashes and a summer of cricket: experts agree a scorcher lies ahead

    1. Who will win the Ashes and what will be the score?

    Damien Fleming: I'm going to be optimistic and go for Australia. Hopefully with the extra bounce at the Gabba and the WACA we'll win those Tests. Ideally, it will be 2-1 going into the Boxing Day Test and that's where the Aussies will regain the Ashes for the first time in a long time.

    Ian Healy: No idea, there will be no speculation from me. England will be very disappointed if they didn't win the Ashes and Australia are very capable of winning the Ashes.

    Brendon Julian: I think we'll win this one, we're a bit more stabilised and settled than we were in England. It will be 2-1 Australia.

    Stuart MacGill: I've always felt bowling wins Test matches and I'm concerned that, while Australia have tremendous depth which will come out this summer, we're in a bit of trouble. Kevin Pietersen is undoubtedly their best batsman, a superstar. Our bowlers are going to find it hard to defend small totals. Our top six is unsettled and could be susceptible to the swinging ball. A lot relies on Chris Rogers and Michael Clarke. I'm relieved Dave Warner is in such ridiculous form. We're a chance if we get a score on the board. I'd say 3-1 to England, being generous.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
