    Yep, because they came close in Australia and they still have all of their stars playing for them... On form Pakistan will probably have suspended Asif between now and then for being rubbish...


    Tbh their batting wont be enough even if Asif and Aamer restrict Australia well Bollinger will clean up a heap of batsmen that i will probably never have heard of.

    Will definetly be going to the Lords test, just really hope that it is competative however unlikely that seems at the moment. Will still be worth going though, plenty of players that I would like to watch, maybe Ponting playing his last test in England.

    Bolly for most wickets. Reckon he'll love bowling in England.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    I think that's due to inability to find a better window. Test cricket in UAE summer is suicidal.

    Wasn't there a Test match played where bowlers could only bowl one over at a time and Andy Bichel bowled a couple overs in a spell and collapsed or something

    I don't think Law of averages work out in favor of pakistan greatly. In Australia too, the top order performed near around their career averages and got destroyed. Unless someone really steps up and have a vaughan02-03esque run, I don't see pakistan posting anything remotely competitive.

    Their bowlers might be able to pull something off though, particularly considering how an inferior english lineup did well in last ashes.

    I expect the series to a low scoring affair generally.

    I know players improve and all that, but he didn't seem to 3 years ago for Worcestershire - 16 @ 44.56 (and that came in the middle of good bowling figures in other countries)
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Haha, I didn't bother looking up his county figures and I knew that'd end up being the case! Hopefully he'll just do the reverse-Hughes. Bad county figures but good Test figures.

    Took Michael Clarke quite a few county games to get going and he certainly came good.
