    It's far from nailed-against certainly TBH. Things are looking pretty decent for us currently, there's a decent amount of stability, but as mentioned the same thing is currently true of SA.

    I mean, even now you can be near enough certain of the teams that will stroll out on the opening morning (fitness permitting obviously):
    Strauss, Cook, Vaughan, Pietersen, Bell, *, Ambrose, *, Sidebottom, Anderson, MSP.
    Smith, McKenzie, Amla, Kallis, Prince, de Villiers, Boucher, Harris, *, Ntini, Steyn.

    There's only one place in the SA team up for grabs, really, it's a question of Nel or Morkel. With England there's absolutely no guarantee of either Collingwood or, especially, Broad, being in the line-up.

    Collingwood, of course, has never played a Test against South Africa - the only team he's not yet faced. And the team which has conquered him best in ODIs.

    The krauts will struggle away from home. Steyn is a matchwinner but the other 10 will more likely put you to sleep than win a test match. I am picking a series win to the barely passable poms.

    This account truly does have uncanny similarities to SW\BLE. I'm pretty sure it's not, but it's odd.

    Still not lost the BLE obsession, hey. I haven't really missed much at all.

    2-1 England, with the Headingley Test unfortunately cancelled because the players went on strike at the thought of being forced to spend yet another week in Yorkshire.

    Wickets against Bangladesh. My answer is that he has incriminating photos in his possession.

    Don't know why you put a question mark against his name. ATM he is better than Bell. Also, when was the last time he was dropped? I could be wrong, but he has had a pretty solid run in the team since the India series, while Bell has been the one who has constantly disappointed.

    Can only see a comfortable win for the Saffies tbh, Broad and Anderson to get pelted in the first test, then we'll rotate through other options not finding any answers whilst Steyn and co run riot. Pietersen,Cook and Sidebottom to hold steady amongst the turd

    England at home are never easy to beat but I'd be quite disappointed if RSA don't at the bare minimum achieve a drawn series.

    England are a reasonable team but I do think their abilities are overstated -
    I can't see England genuinely challenging Australia for that world no.1 spot - England don't have the talent for that. And quite frankly I've never understood the view held by some on this forum that England are a great team in the making. They had some reasonable success against relatively weak opposition in 2004 and were in the right place at the right time against Australia in 2005. And they've been largely poor since.
    They have a bunch of largely decent cricketers with 1-2 very good cricketers
    - KP is probably the only one that could potentially be a genuine great and he's not even a product of the English system.

    South Africa , on the other hand I think have the ability to be a real threat to Australia.

    Think SA will win. England atm can't put an our inexperienced line up away (especially compared with what SA have been doing, not to mention what they did to us, though to clutch at straws we had Papps, Cumming and Vincent and a raw Taylor ). Apart from Sidebottom and occassionally Anderson they're a bit toothless unless Flintoff lasts longer than 5 minutes.

    Will be supporting England however.
