Ok, time to make a complete idiot of myself:
2-1 to England if they win the first test, 2-2 if the Aussies do.
Top run scorer:
England: Alastair Cook. Time he had a big series, and seems to be in form - as, in fact, do most of the England batsmen. Most of the others will have a big score or two, but I'm guessing Cook will do what Trescothick did last time round and contribute in most innings.
Australia: Michael Clarke. Hughes will get peppered after his dismissals against Harmison, Ponting and Hussey also contenders, but not convinced Hussey is fully back in form yet. I'm sure he'll prove me wrong!
Top Wicket Taker
England: James Anderson. Just look at the records over the last 12 months. Swann could challenge this - not much between the two attacks in terms of pace bowling, but it's been a hot dry summer so far, and spin will come into it.
Australia: Mitchell Johnson.
I'm guessing that one key player from each side won't last the series. My money is on Flintoff and Lee (whilst writing this on Monday, I discovered that Lee is out for the first 2 tests. Wohoo I'm a prophet! Ok, Flintoff and Stuart Clark).
Going to Cardiff for the Friday of the first test, so we'll see whether Freddie is right about the SWALEC stadium, or whether it's ok. I'll miss watching Lee bowl, which is a shame, but most of the bowlers on both sides are pretty spicy. Come on England!
