    Your gutsy calls for 2020

    Aside from the hindsight and foresight puns this 12 upcoming months will choke us on, what are willing to go out on a limb predicting?

    I reckon
    Zimbabwe will be stripped of test status
    Afghanistan will win more test matches than Sri Lanka
    Cricket Kenya will be dissolved
    Root to score more test match runs than Kohli
    LEARN SOMETHING NEW ABOUT AFRICA TODAY

    That's not that gutsy. He did that in 2019 too (2019 Cricket Team Records & Stats | ESPNcricinfo.com) and probably 2018, and 2017 etc etc. He's played 4 more tests, and England continue to play the most tests out of any team.
    On top of that, India had a slew of innings victories this year so didn't need Kohli to bat out both innings.

    Edit: Just summarised below
    Kohli averages 68.00 from 8 tests (11 innings) with 612 runs
    Root averages 36.50 from 12 tests (22 innings and counting) with 803 runs

    Literally played twice as many innings.

    That is rather weird.

    1. No, in 2021.
    2. No, SL will win due to their lack of draws.
    3. No, and they'll come back into WC contention after 25 years.
    4. Yes but hardly gutsy as pointed out by deathscar.

    I mean......they’re pretty bold predictions and I’m a staunch England fan!

    India to continue to dominate Test cricket, but Kohli will be banned for overrates at some point
    Cameron Green to make his international debut and win MOTM, only to break down shortly thereafter
    Sri Lanka change coaches at least twice during the calendar year
    QDK gets the South African captaincy in all formats, and it rapidly becomes an unmitigated disaster for all involved
    Langer will find some way to shoehorn Cameron Bancroft back into the Australian team yet again
    The SACA's will actually become a decent Sheffield Shield side


    OK, maybe that last one is a bit too unrealistic

    a central stags bowler will finally deliver on his talent
    at least two big name test players will announce shock retirements. one will be a player retiring to follow god and do missionary () work.

    Burns won't find a stable opening partner all year
    Foakes, Woakes and Stokes will happen at long last.
    Paine's swansong will come to its conclusion
    Faf to retire (Edit: By doing an AB and going full on T20 merc)
    Australia will win the T20 world cup, thereby proving nothing.
    Pattinson will suffer yet another injury
    South Africa will suck immensely
    Kohli's brakes will not yet slam
    Stoinis to debut
    Wagner will have started the degradation of Smith
    Rahane will make up somewhat for years of slumber in performances
    Ross daddy will retire from Limited Overs
    Kraigg Brathwaite will be dropped
    People will keep saying Kusal Mendis and Shai Hope are class as they do piss all in Tests all year.

    England to continue it's decline into minnow status
    BCCI to only schedule home matches or away games against weaker teams
    South Africa and Sri Lanka to recover to somewhat respectable cricket teams
    Australia and India to be the powerhouses of world cricket with little competition
    The whole world will realise that Travis Head is an absolute hack who belongs in his Grade 2nd XI

    Is Steve retiring? Or are you talking about Robin?

    This too, but with a few controversies that will rally the hatred against it.

    Definitely. The Vitality already gets well attended games despite 3/4 of the crowd just there for a social night out rather than the cricket. A few little rule changes won't change that.
