    Score: 2-1 to England
    Most runs: Tendulkar
    Most wickets: Tremlett
    Most catches: Prior
    Biggest innings: 600 or so, both teams 1 time each. One 200 from Bell, One from Tendulkar
    Best bowling: 6-50, Zaheer
    MOTS (Eng): Tremlett
    MOTS (Ind): Tendulkar
    Axed: Both India and England's No.6s
    Surprise pick: Praveen Kumar to bowl very well if he's picked. Gambhir to average 50+
    Random prediction: Swann to retire in embarrassment after being humiliated for 4 tests.

    Would try to answer the last question but confirmation bias might kick in due to that and people don't want that.

    Why haven't all these threads which have been sprouting up like a rash been merged by some trigger-happy moderator?

    Or - dare I hope? - is there going to be a sub-forum after all? Where each of these will have a legitimate individual existence, without their very life being snuffed out by a 35,000 post monster.
