The 2006 3 mobile Ashes Series Australia vs. England

so, the ashes are a mere 5 months away, tickets went on sale yesterday casuing massive tickemaster/ticketek system failures (even worse then when u2 went on sale!), i just saw some poor englishman paid 110,000 pounds for 2 MCG tickets....Sucker, i paid $19 austalian for 1 general admission ticket on day 3. so lets discuss the ashes, your predictions for winner, man of the series, most centruries ect.

personally im thinking Australia will win..coz im not bias at all, Ricky Ponting or Shane Warne will probably win man of the series, although i want Gilly to!, but i predict ponting to get the most centuries, so lets get the cross world rivalry going!

I'm tipping Australia to win as well.

The last series converted me to cricket and I'm really looking forward to this one.

If England play like they're playing against the Lankans now they can expect heavy defeats by the time the Ashes roll around.

and those $2000 plane tickets will be such a waste, say does anyone else have tickets or plan to get them on the 19th?

true...but to be fair, England have many injured players at the moment.

Well giving this a bump with some team news.

First it was Simon Jones, now it's Michael Vaughan, who was confirmed today as being definitely out of England's line-up.

My predicted line-up for England:

1. Trescothick
2. Cook
3. Strauss
4. Pietersen
5. Flintoff (c)
6. Jones
7. Dalrymple
8. Hoggard
9. Harmison
10. Mahmood/Plunkett/ Anderson
11. Panesar

I think England must be praying Jimmy Anderson and (at a long shot, because it doesn't look bloody likely) Giles return fit and in time for the series because if they're stuck to playing the likes of Mahmood then batsmen like Hussey and Ponting are going to be enjoying themselves. Dalrymple was the only one to come out of the one day series against the Lankans looking anywhere decent so the Pakistan series is going to be interesting to see if he can make it in Tests. It's actually still a pretty decent, competitive line-up.

That said even with all the injuries you wonder why the county system, purportedly the best first-class league in the world, isn't producing more world-class players. Kabir Ali, anyone?

Dalrymple: Cricinfo gave him an 8 for the one day series against the Lankans. He's a useful off-spinner and a pretty decent bat as well. He just got trapped leg before for 1 off 5 balls for England A against Pakistan though.

Quote:
Jamie Dalrymple
The one player to take his opportunity with both hands and by the end of the series was already feeling like a one-day regular. It was his stylish and composed batting that really shone, as more senior players around him lost their wickets in a variety of styles. He showed the ability to nurdle singles and clear the boundary with equal measure. His bowling won't frighten the opposition, but he isn't afraid to give the ball a tweak and vary his pace intelligently and was about the only controlling option open to Andrew Strauss. Somehow he managed to concede less than five-an-over during the Headingley carnage. The World Cup beckons.

Flintoff now out for three months. This could be dodgy indeed.

Still, it means Ian Bell's got a chance to try and show what he can do. The bowling now looks very, very thin though.

I guess another England Ashes 24 test losing streak had to start at some point

this Aussie summer sounds like a good starting point for me

I am 100000% sure Australia will win... last year England's win was a miracle. Steve Harmison hasn't performed as well since then and Andrew Flintoff is injured...Australia will be smarting from the loss and raring to go!
