Jimmy in form and will be heading to his favourite ground looking to go past the great Fred very early in the innings. Can see an England win here with Anderson and Broad firing.

2 things have been confirmed for me already

1. Harris and Pattinson are appreciably better than Bird, Finn and Bresnan

2. Rooty Hill u/13 C's have a better batting lineup than Australia so 1 wont make any difference whatsoever

Can England go easy on Australia and play Essex XI in the first test? We don't want to make it too boring now do we?

Just as a courtesy message, tickets go on sale tomorrow for the Australian leg of the Ashes series for all ACF members.

Just Google Australian Cricket Family and register for those who aren't members and want tickets.

Is this a ****ing joke:

"Apart from anointing Rogers, Lehmann said that he was considering a five-man bowling attack for Trent Bridge, which would likely have Brad Haddin and the uncapped James Faulkner batting at Nos. 6 and 7."

Also, "Ryan Harris and Jackson Bird have slim chances of squeezing into the bowling quartet for Trent Bridge, but the resting of James Pattinson, Mitchell Starc, Peter Siddle and the spinner Nathan Lyon for the tour match in Worcester is the strongest indication yet that they will be the frontline attack for Australia."

Really? Starc is gonna play over Harris? Wtf is going on here. If I made a list of the capped bowlers who I think would be most likely to leak runs it would be 1. Starc 2. Pattinson 3. Siddle 4. Harris 5. Bird.

To be fair this is media speculation, not a direct quote from Lehmann.
