    Expectations for 2006 and Happy New Year 2006

    2006 arrives here in about 3 and half hours time. Happy New Year everyone and May 2006 be happy and prosperous for each and everyone of you.

    And these are my wishes for 2006 .

    1 SL Batsmen to finally find some form.
    2 New comers in to the SL Team to do well.(Batsmen and the new Spinners)
    3 SL stop its decline in both Tests and ODIs and return to winning ways .
    4 ICC to abolish the stupid Super Sub rule and Power Plays (Cricket is complicated enough as it is and particularly chaps like Marvan Atapttu are not intellectual giants by any stretch of the imagination. The guy struggles with simple things and Power Play makes it too hard for him !! For instance today against NZ he forgot the last power play completely and still got away with it as SL lost any way. )
    5 ICC to re-consider 3rd Umpire involvement in LBWs and close catches.

    What does everyone else on CW wish for in 2006 ?

    Happy new year everyone, you all like cricket so you must be all top notches

    For 2006 I want them Ashes back Although I realise that will take in a little of 2007
    You know it makes sense.

    Isn't the series scheduled so there's 3 Tests in 2006?

    Actually four Tests. But then again, this time McGrath might not be sure of a 5-0 victory.

    Hopes
    - Shane Watson establishes himself at international level
    - Powerplays & supersubs abolished
    - Zimbabwe and Bangladesh have Test status removed
    - Michael Vaughan passes away mysteriously in his sleep
    - 2006 to be an entertaining year of cricket

    Expectations
    - Australia to regain the Ashes
    - Andrew Symonds to become a consistent test allrounder
    - Shane Warne to continue his incredible form
    - AB de Villiers & Mike Hussey continue to impress
    - IK Pathan to join the likes of Flintoff & Kallis as one of the top current allrounders

    Hopes
    Nathan Bracken to become a regular in the Aussie squad
    Stuart MacGill to get more games than he has this year
    Australia to thump England in the Ashes
    Bangladesh to win more matches
    Zimbabwe to sort itself out

    Expectations
    Zimbabwe won't sort itself out, will flounder around helplessly before losing interational status
    The Ashes will be a challenging series that Australia will eventually win
    Australia to continue with the whole allrounder business, and Watson to become a test regular
    Andrew Flintoff to impress during the first few Ashes test but to sustain an injury halfway through due to massive work load.

    A close series would be good, I'm sure most people would agree. But I doubt we will see a close series...

    I agree - it's well-deserved.
