    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    he has a point, to an extent. harmison has always been considered to be a better bowler against right handers than against left handers and hoggard has always been better at bowling the ball that leaves the right hander than the one that leaves the left hander.

    I'm hoping to go to the first tour match: Australia vs Leicestershire, it looks like it'll be good.
    Or something.

    im gonna tip 5-0 (4-0 maybe with wether), i think Australia are putting alot of preparation into this tour, like the indian tour and should come out at their best.

    McGrath and Warne to dominate with the ball

    Ponting and Hayden with the bat, the lower order wont get that much of a chance

    Good to see an English fan who actually thinks England should pick their best bowlers in the ODIs. Playing rubbishy bowlers like Kabir Ali and Wharf just because they can bat a bit is not a good move at all. There's a reason Australia picks four genuine bowlers in their ODI side, including those who are there primarily to take wickets and not just to keep the runs down.

    Anyway, here's my Australian sides based on personal preference and not a prediction on selection.

    ODIs
    Gilchrist
    Hayden
    Ponting
    Martyn
    Symonds
    Clarke
    Hopes
    Hogg
    Lee
    Gillespie
    McGrath

    If Hayden blows it in the first few ODIs, consider opening with Clarke and bringing Hussey in at 6. Same story with Hopes and Watson or White.

    Tests
    Langer
    Hayden
    Ponting
    Martyn
    Clarke
    Katich
    Gilchrist
    Warne
    Lee
    Gillespie
    McGrath

    because last i saw him, his technique wasnt upto test match standard. one good year in domestic cricket wont change that for me, he may have improved but i really doubt that we can afford to go in with 6 batsmen for the ashes, especially if we have pieterson and flintoff batting at 5 and 6, who are prone to throwing their wickets away.
    im not a big jones fan, but i think he deserves more chances, and one can only hope he has FINALLY realised that test cricket is not about playing your shots before getting set.
    were i to pick an aussie ODI side though, it would look like this:
    clarke
    gilchrist
    ponting
    bevan
    martyn
    lehmann
    symonds
    hogg
    lee
    kaspa/gillespie
    mcgrath

    unfortunately as we know, that wont happen

    They should just give him a chance...my name down too.

    I'm not going to predict the number of tests won/lost. I just predict that Australia will win.

    In a perfect world it would be 5-0 to England, with Flintoff and Vaughan scoring centuries out of their a***s and Anderson, Sajid Mahmood and Flintoff (in between bowling Lancashire to the quadruple of the championship Div 2, C&G, National League div 1 and Twenty20 ) spearheading the England attack which tames Hayden, Ponting, Langer, Martyn, Gilchrist and Clarke, who only score the one century between them whilst Glenn McGrath shows them how to do it with 2. The Aussies go home dejected and a long period of England dominance. In the end, Australia get so desperate they get the scummy Chris "I think I'm bigger than Lancashire so when they sack me I take them to court" Schofield to go over there and play for New South Wales whilst waiting for him to qualify for residency so he can play for them. However, he gets sent to prison after it being found out he was an illegal immigrant and lives torturously ever after.
    After that little bit to show mr Schofield that NOBODY is bigger than Lancashire, the Ashes would be contested competitively and fairly forever and ever. The End


    In reference to Vaughan, do you consider him to be a traitor because he was born in Manchester but plays for Yorkshire (I guess he could justify supporting Man Ure if he wanted to or Man Citeh?).
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...
