    Series 2 Predictions

    Result: Australia 1-4 England
    Most runs: Pietersen for the good guys, Watson for crims
    Most wickets: Anderson, Harris if fit for 4 or 5
    Left field selection: onions to earn a callup after a spate of injuries
    Surprise dropping: Siddle after a disaster in the first two
    The Ashes Infractions: England to top this.
    Other miscellaneous: Shane Warne will whine about Cook's negative captaincy as he leads us to our biggest win over there in a couple of lifetimes
    Phil Hughes 1988-2014

    RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

    Result: Australia 2-1 England
    Most runs: KP and Clarke
    Most wickets: Jimmeh and Harris
    Left field selection: England will select a fast bowler who's under 8 foot tall, Australia will entertain the idea of selecting 2 batsmen
    Surprise dropping: Shane Watson once the selectors finally realise he's hopeless
    The Ashes Infractions: We've got sledger, although none of his infractions will have anything to do with the series.
    Other miscellaneous: Australia will smash us at Perth. David Gower will get fired after strangling Shane Warne live on TV after he utters the phrase "have to be prepared to lose in order to win" for the 14,000th time that day. Nasser Hussein will shortly follow suit after taking exception to Warne explaining that "if it seams, it spins."

    Result: Australia 2-3 England
    Most runs: KP/Warner
    Most wickets: Anderson/Siddle
    Left field selection: Coulter-Nile
    Surprise dropping: Root
    The Ashes Infractions: Australia, mainly due to the fact that most of the trolls tend to be Australia. Probably England out of pre-existing members though.
    Other miscellaneous: Warne to become main selector for Australia, and convinces England to select Jim Allenby at Perth because "he knows the local conditions".
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Result: 2-1 England
    Runs: Cook/Smith
    Wickets: Broad/Harris
    Left field selection: Fawad Ahmed by Boxing Day
    Surprise dropping: Lyon (fairly unsurprising tbf), Carberry
    Miscellaneous: Clarke to miss at least one Test from his back, Johnson to be rubbish but still play at Adelaide and Perth, Smith to take at least 5 wickets.

    Result: Australia 2, England 1
    Most runs: Bell, Clarke
    Most wickets: Anderson (purely because he'll play the most matches among the seamers), Siddle (again, least likely to break down, which isn't saying much)
    Left field selection: I actually think there will be no left field selections but put a gun to my head, Cameron Boyce. I'm guessing Ben Cutting isn't really left-field enough
    Surprise dropping: Piggy Smith...not really going out on a limb here, am I? Ok, ok...Mitchell Johnson dun dun dun
    Other miscellaneous: KP delivers some epic sledges.

    Hmmm, I was musing over Watto for a surprise dropping myself. But concluded it was just wishful thinking.

    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
