    "You can quote me on this........"

    This thread should be periodically reviewed in order to check accuracy. Feel free to add more so that you too can have egg on your face.

    At the risk of looking foolish, here are 5 predictions to go on record:

    1. Ricky Ponting will be Australia's captain in the next Ashes series
    2. Matt Hayden will open the batting with Justin Langer at the Gabba in that series.
    3. Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist and Glenn McGrath will all play in the series.
    4. Australia will go into the series ranked 1 in the world and will retain their ranking at the end of it.
    5. Australia will lose the ODI Super Series and win the test match.

    1. Chris Read will never play another Test Match or ODI.

    If he does, He will go in my avatar, and my sig will say "All Bow Down To The Mighty CHRIS READ"

    For 3 days.
    Or something.

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1/11/1990 - 15/4/2006

    1. Murali won't get good figures on the Australian pitches in the Test match of the Super Series.
    2. Read won't play for England again.

    If either of those 2 don't happen, they'll go in my avatar for a week.

    Flintoff will bat well in the Super Series, but won't bowl well.

    Simon Jones will be the best pace bowler in the world in less than 2 years......only injury can stop him.
    Flintoff will fail with the bat in India.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Andrew Strauss will be the next England captain, and eventually knighted for his services to cricket.

    Hey, it could happen...

    1. Cameron White will have a long successful international career
    2. Justin Langer will play longer than Martyn, Hayden, Gilchrist, Warne, McGrath, Kasprowicz
    3. Aftab Ahmed and Alok Kapali will be considered Bangladesh's two greatest batsmen ever when they retire
