    So predictions?
    Ashes Series 1-1, Home advantage counting. Mitchell Johnson to win a couple of tests to the delight of everybody on CW.
    Champions Trophy winners England make best use of home conditions
    Michael Clarke's back crumbling under the pressure of carrying Australia's batting
    New Zealand to fall further into all time lows over all 3 formats
    Sachin to retire after a miserable tour against Australia. India come out on top anyway with the inexperienced Aussie batting struggling against spin.
    What are your predictions for 2013?
    We've also got World Cup Qualifiers of which I'm massively scared Kenya could miss making it for the first time since 1996, spelling the end of cricket in Kenya period.

    Australia are going to get pumped in England. I cannot for the life of me see their batsman standing up to the English attack on a regular enough basis.

    BUMP. Let's see how well we did.

    * A current (or recent) international cricketer dies
    * Sachin finally retires, so does Jayawardene, Zaheer, Kallis, Samaraweera, and a surprise name.
    * Pakistan to win the Champions Trophy
    * South Africa to remain #1 in tests, nfi about other championships.
    * Year-End Test XI: Cook, Warner, Amla, R Taylor, Clarke, Kohli, Prior, Swann, Pattinson, Steyn, Anderson
    * Yep
    * Sort of. They did beat Zimbabwe but I dunno if that counts. More importantly their competitiveness against proper Test sides has vastly improved.
    * No on both accounts. TBF, India were lucky to not get wiped out against South Africa, but they actually showed quite a bit of fight.
    * Correct on a technicality. They won all their matches in South Africa but lost a Test to Pakistan in the UAE.
    * Don't think so no.
    * 3/5 - not bad. I think Swann counts as a surprise name too.
    * No.
    * Yes.
    * My Test XI had 4/11 IIRC. Not awful I guess.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    South Africa will remain dominant, although Pakistan will give them a few scares.

    India will turn things around pretty quickly upon the introduction of B Kumar and Rahane to their side.
    2.5/3. India did turn things around but it wasn't due to Bhuvi or Rahane. Also, England didn't raise those questions, to their own demise.

    That Steyn bloke to continue picking up bucketloads of wickets.
    You know if you dial down the exaggerations a bit and switch Taylor's hundreds from England to the Windies these were some pretty good calls.

    Seems like my tips have been deleted. You'll all just have to take my word that I predicted most things that ended up happening, namely:

    - Jono making lots of **** posts
    - Sledger, Furball and Benchmark all being banned at some point in 2013
    - Burgey to lose his rag with at least one blow-in
    - Ben Stokes to score a ton on second dayboo

    Celebration of series victory to coincide with news of death of Margaret Thatcher, who will thereby have done the only decent thing of her evil life.

    Swann to go past 250 wickets and still be regarded **** by majority of Aussies.
    Well got the last one right anyway.
