    I'm not going to wish for any Steve Smith success in the series, but it would be good if both of these blokes do perform and have a good show down over 5 tests. Clearly Smith is way in front of Root atm but if Root can have a big series and outscore Smith then I think that will narrow the gap between them significantly.

    Hazlewood getting Root at least 5 times
    Moeen getting Smith at least 5 times
    Cook will pull a "Trott" midway through the series.

    Not sure if it will be midway but I see a few retirements after the Ashes - namely Cook and Jimmeh

    Not even certain what you mean there?? One thing is for sure though if you're referring to some mental health issues removing Cook from the tour then I don't think you could have picked a less likely player for that to happen to. The only way Cooks leaving the tour is through injury.

    I guess both of those are possible, but for certain it wont be mid tour. Both of them have played in enough tours down under and experienced 5 zip twice.......there is nothing the Aussies will throw at them that will break them now.

    I think a Cook retirement post Ashes is far more likely than Jimmy. Jimmy is as good as he's ever been and I reckon he's got his eyes set on the 2019 Ashes in England and 600+ test wickets. Cook I'm not sure about, I don't think he got the lift he was hoping for after given up the captaincy and his form has been patchy this summer.......god knows I hope he hangs a round for a bit though. We have been unable to replace Strauss ffs, we'd be ****ed if we have to try and find a replacement for Cook too.

    Cook's a bit under 33. You'd hope that he has two to four years left at least.

    Yeah I can't see Cook retiring. Anderson maybe.

    Yeah it wasn't really about his age but more the impression I got from his interviews. He wanted to leave after 2013 Ashes, and he wanted to leave after the India series. The 2013 Ashes broke something inside him and a player with most Test runs and centuries for England at this stage might just feel he is done with cricket after yet another tough Ashes tour. He doesn't play ODIs so there's no World Cup left. He has won 2 Ashes series, a series in India. 2019 Ashes is nothing new for him.

    Yeah that would be my take on it too. Whereas Jimmy has always spoken about playing for as long as he can.

    England bowlers to be competitive in the first 2 tests while Shane Bond is coaching them, before getting smashed in the last 3 after he leaves.
