    I can genuinely see any of the four quicks being man of the series but then also see them not playing a single game.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Result - 2-2 Draw (I will say I think Australia will be the better side, but I say there'll be at least two collapses)
    Leading run scorer - Root
    Leading wicket taker - Anderson (though certain Aussie bowlers will average less)
    Surprise package - Rogers - will outscore Warner.
    Biggest Failure - Ballance, though arguably it would be more of a surprise if he succeeded
    Surprise dropping - Johnson, two average Tests leads to him getting dumped.
    5-0

    I actually have a feeling this might come true.

    No way we whitewash without Warner having a good series IMO.

    Rogers can bat for hours, Smith will be disgustingly prolific, Clarke/Voges/Watson etc. will be decent and the tail will chip in. Warner might slap a few fifties but I just feel that in the conditions, current form and English bowlers he may struggle.

    I see this being true. He won't have bowled for 5 weeks when he goes into the 1st Test. Strauss wants him kept fresh.
