    is there really any point in this poll..I would be shocked if ANYONE would pick anything other than an Australian series win.

    Why not alter the poll to break it down into what score the end series result will be!!!

    Voting England just to spite you

    In all seriousness, 3-1 Australia.

    its not a case of loyalty..I am sure 95% of the members of the Barmy Army will think Australia will win, and yet still shout big time for England..its just being realistic

    They all said "Hallo," and felt awkward and unhappy suddenly, because it was a sort of good-bye they were saying, and they didn't want to think about it.

    It's like City at Old Trafford. Just a little less unlikely.

    Believing it can happen, and thinking it will happen are two different things.

    Our batting looks strong, but I do not believe England have the bowlers to bowl Australia out twice.

    Flintoff - a decent enough stock bowler who will consistently do a job but rarely runs through sides.

    Hoggard - England's best bowler in the form of his life who bowls a steady line at decent pace and has the ability to swing the ball both ways.

    Harmison - an outrageously overrated bowler with severe mental frailties who seems unable to adapt his bowling to the circumstances and prays on weaker teams.

    Giles - a mediocre Test bowler who remains very reliant on spinning wickets, and cannot be expected to cause Australia much trouble.

    Jones/Anderson - very wayward bowlers who struggle for a consistent line and length and will be destroyed by Australia.

    With just two good bowlers we cannot be expected to win a match, but our good batting lineup should prevent a whitewash.

    My Prediction: Australia 3-0 England

    Mostly complete tosh there, also a whitewash is any series where you win and your opponent fails to score - that includes 3-0.

    I think you have completely under valued the English bowling attack there

    People who have predicted an English victory so far - 4

    On the English attack, they are quite capable of taking 20 Australian wickets.

    Anderson is probably the only you've gotten right, Giles will cause Australia problems whether he's on a spinning wicket or not. Jones is fairly consistent tho unfortunately he just doesn't move the ball one iota a lot of the time. Harmison did very well against NZ who are not one of the 'weaker teams' and basically has been written off by a large crowd of idiots because he lost his form when he hadn't played for months, I don't see how that makes him outrageously overrated. Flintoff has started to run through sides lately and is far more than a "decent enough stock bowler" - him and Harmison are England's best bowlers.
