    As if he'd have showed his face round here after the first session in Brum

    Let's be honest. All teams have their bandwagon fair weather fans and old Hooksey definitely fits the bill

    Surprise package: Brad Haddin will keep competently
    Biggest failure: Bell
    Surprise dropping: Bell
    Series result wasn't far off (in fact reading it back I was obviously calling England by 1 )
    Run scorer was just rubbish
    Aussie wicket taker spot on, English one would have been if he'd played at Trent Bridge.
    Surprise package comment was both a poor joke and wrong
    Biggest failure: goes to Lyth but Bell was certainly a disappointment.
    Surprise dropping: sadly not.

    No way would Anderson have taken more than one or two at TB just because of how good Broad was

    I have just decided right now that Broad is going to have a great series.
    Lyth...oh dear.

    Will take the England win and Broad though. Haddin does not really count, Smith well he failed a bit but then also scored loads of runs like the fantastic player he is.

    Leading run scorer - Root - leading England runscorer anyway. Probably the best batsman so not a terrible call.
    Leading wicket taker - Anderson (though certain Aussie bowlers will average less) - had he not gotten hurt I could well have been in the money here. Overestimated our bowling attack, which in fairness these predictions were done before Harris retired
    Surprise package - Rogers - will outscore Warner. - yup. Maybe not the the biggest surprise, but close
    Biggest Failure - Ballance, though arguably it would be more of a surprise if he succeeded - actually played an important innings at Cardiff, but looked really bad generally. Not sure he was the Biggest Failure but he wasn't great
    Surprise dropping - Johnson, two average Tests leads to him getting dumped. - had Harris been fit he could well have been dumped after Cardiff
    Not terrible. Not really right but most of the predictions were in the ballpark.
    5-0

    It was a surprise just how awful Lyth would be. I don't think anyone expected him to be quite that bad. Furthermore, it was a surprise that he was picked for every match.
