    Have a feeling we are going to see something special from the less celebrated Aussies - Voges, Marsh, and Hazelwood.

    If Broad bowls badly enough to get dropped then Australia are in for a very, very good series.
    do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
    who's going to make the violins?

    i'm just very anti-Broad so he gets my hopeful drop prediction rather than my logical drop prediction

    Welcome back Hooksey.

    Hmmmm, some pretty bold predictions there son........the only one I can see coming to fruition is Warner as top scorer. In fact I'd be willing to have an Avatar bet with you on all of the others combined if you're game?

    If any one if the following happens you can have my Avatar for 3 months, if none of them do I get yours...........simple as that.

    - Australia win 4 or 5 - 0
    - Johnson as leading wicket taker for series
    - Cook the biggest failure (I guess this would be lowest run scorer for the series out of top 6 bats from both sides??)
    - Cook dropped during the series (not sure what you mean by "spared".....if he plays all 5 tests then he hasn't been dropped, anyone's opinion on whether that is the right call or not is really irrelevant))

    I look forward to you backing your calls and accepting the challenge............

    I was the only one here who predicted Adam Voges' debut ton.

    I did get a laugh out of you welcoming me back

    Changing my surprise dropping to Mitchell Johnson, given the form of Haze and Starc, the quality of Harris and the fact Johnson has never really done it in England before.
