Norwood's on Fire
Oz's away record makes me far more confident than most of my compatriots seem to be. 4-0 England.
Predicting an England win in Australia is a huge call. Predicting an England win in England isn't.Like I said in the road to thread, I'm getting more confident. I don't want to predict anything though. I predicted we'd win in Australia 18 months ago.
Same. I have taken a bit of confidence out of the NZ series and think we're playing some decent cricket now and like GIMH says there is not a great gulf between NZ and Australia so I certainly have some hope.Like I said in the road to thread, I'm getting more confident. I don't want to predict anything though. I predicted we'd win in Australia 18 months ago.
Ashes time: when good posters turn into one-eyed, partisan hacksIf it ends up being a tight series this could be such an important factor, and lets face it there is just no contest in this department.......................Cookie by a country mile
No, Watson will ton up in the fifth test when the series is already decided one way or the other. Up until that point he won't have made a better score than 35, but his bowling will have been economical despite lack of wickets and, regarding batting, he'll declare he's "hitting them as well as ever and just one big score away from breakthrough". He will make 140 in the second innings of the dead rubber, meaning he will get another test series at home in the summer.What're the odds there'll be a Watson ton in the draw
