    2013 Predictions

    We've got back to back ashes; the champions trophy; a number of bi-lateral ODI series squeezed into the schedule; South Africa trying to consolidate their no.1 test status against Pakistan; India trying to salvage something at home against Australia; and New Zealand trying not to become inconsequential in international cricket with home and away series against England.

    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?

    England to retain the Ashes
    Pakistan to win Champion's Trophy
    Joe Root to win ICC Player of the Year
    Zimbabwe to win a Test
    Sreesanth to announce Test retirement
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Clarke scoring yet another triple ton in the first test against India before Pujara and Kohli combine to save test.
    Sachin to retire after Chennai test scoring a century in successful 4th innings chase.
    India win the Aussie series 2-1.
    SA choke in champions trophy. Pakistan win it on the back of its awesome bowlers.

    Ross Taylor to belt 10 consecutive double hundreds in five tests against England upon his international return. England to then get belted in the Ashes and give up pretending they can play cricket.

    That Steyn bloke to continue picking up bucketloads of wickets.

    I think Clarke will come back down to Earth as people discover he is susceptible to off cutters.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    We'll win in India and take the Ashes 4-1. The latter far more important than the former, and no other cricket really counts for the year.

    England to thrash Australia in England and retain the urn down under as Aussies can't regroup in time.
    Lyon to get dropped.
    Sachin to eventually retire after Aussie series.
    Aussies have an injury free attack (sorry ridiculous fantasy)
    Swann to go past 250 wickets and still be regarded **** by majority of Aussies.

    England to win the Ashes 3-0 with Australia getting two draws thanks to the weather intervening.

    Simon Katich to embarrass Australian selectors

    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.

    I am not even in England nor have I set foot in your fine country. But I remember feeling oppressed from afar when she was in charge.
