Ahhhhhh pride before a fall.

Is Panesar a definite for the England Ashes team? I'm becoming a big fan of his and think he's a really good spinner but is his standard of fielding and batting really good enough yet to face Australia? I suppose his bowling more than makes up for any other weaknesses of his but still.

Also, a name to watch out for in the future- Adil Rashid. A Bradford boy who took six wickets in his Yorkshire debut the other week, has taken eight wickets and scored a century so far in the England Under 19 match against India.

Big difference between U-19 and international cricket, though. In five/six years time Rashid may be in the England team though, especially since he's a leg-spinner.

Panesar, by the way, is nailed on for Australia. The only person who has even a remote chance of dislodging him is Ashley Giles.

Australia are the favorites for sure but i dont think this will be anywhere near as one sided as the last time England were in Oz.....
I think Cook will really make a name for himself in this series....

England is playing really very well at the moment - these last two Tests against Pakistain have proven them a class team! Wonder what happened to them against Sri Lanka though? Or is Pakistan simply a weaker team?

A bit of both, I think. Pakistan are missing their first choice attack (hell, Shahid Nazir hasn't played a Test for something like six years) but I think this England set-up is actually gelling together under the leadership of Strauss. Are Australia still massive favourites for the Ashes? Yes, but I guess the odds have been shortened ever so slightly.

Monty's going to be key for England; he's a genuine talent. For him to get figures like he did on that sort of wicket shows how good he is. The problem, of course, is that fielding at the MCG boundary is going to be different from fielding at Headingley or Old Trafford. If he gets his head around that, who knows?

Edit: I missed this because I was in the hospital, but bloody hell.

Dean Jones, a commentator, has had his contract terminated because he was heard on air calling a South African Muslim player a 'terrorist'..... absolutely shocking.

He said he was "kidding."....

Yeah right, he was kidding in calling a Muslim man with a beard a terrorist, knowing that about a million people are listening to him....

so now England are reconsidering handing the captaincy back to Flintoff for the ashes, seeing that Strauss has done well.

i'd probably say to that, Flintoff was over bowling himself as captain against Sri Lanka. He is probably more effective as just being the best player on the team.

australia will clearly smash england, should be great, almost all the seats at every stadium for every test have been sold, and i think most went to Australians.

It'll be Panasar cause he's a dodgy fielder, he's not white and he's got a "funny" asian name. Good luck to him, that's all I can say...

Sounds as if he was more than impressive against Pakistan, which is a bloody good thing for the Poms because the "King of Spain" Ashley Giles is a very ordinary spinner. Need Suchy back!

I think that the Aussies will win convincingly. The prospect of being without Simon Jones and Michael Vaughan could seriously hamper England's chances. There is also a huge question mark over who will keep for England. Read or Geraint? Is there anyone else? Bring back Warren Hegg for a laugh maybe? Also, I'm yet to be fully convinced by Bell, although this young fella Cook could pose a few problems.

Possible team:

Strauss
Trescothick
Cook
Bell
Pieterson
Flintoff
Jones
Hoggard
Mahmood/Jones/Anderson
Panesar
Harmison

Seems to be lacking one more batsman I think. Anyone know who it should be?


There's talk of replacing Langer with Jaques which I think is a wrong move. If Jaques has got to play, than Hayden should make room for him.
Hussey and Ponting will play and have a huge bearing over the outcome of the series, as will the declining Gilchrist.
Warne will prove amazing again. The ultimate and most legendary spinner. A question mark hovers over the impact of the aging McGrath, and can Lee stay in good touch? Gillespie should play, his experience will count, and Tait needs to be reintroduced. MacGill must play as well. It was criminal that he didn't play in the last series. 3rd best spinner in the world.

I hope it's as absorbing as the last Ashes series. Couldn't stop watching it. One of the best things in sport in a long time.


And if Clarke plays at the expense of Brad Hodge, I'm supporting England..... and it's as simple as that...

Today's drama was

In my opinion, it's basically Darrell Hair's fault, he had no proof and based his accusations on mostly assumptions... That's not cricket!

Such drama and wastage of time when the match itself would have been so exciting to watch, I'm sure the rest of the day's play would have been fun to watch.

What I really cannot believe about the whole thing is that when Pakistan finally agree to come out and play the umpires refused to come out!
