The Ashes tour 2015

Post by Bomber »

Just setting things up in readiness.

Aussie coaching their mob should be a laugh, but at least make it more competitive and interesting all the same.

Score, hard to tell, BUT Aussies WILL win it and retain the trophy.

As if the cons would ever ditch sledging.

Part and parcel of the game
The English approach to ideas is not to kill them, but to let them die of neglect.

Should be an interesting series - not sure Australia will do it as easy as they would like to think but they should win. If England do get the upper hand we will at least see very little mention of any cricket on the forums and Australia can go back to pretending they don't play cricket again like this time a couple of years ago

Just been speaking to a convict friend of mine who doesn't have the Aussie bias and plays a very high standard of the game.

He thinks that Smith's record in England will see him fail in this series and return an average under 20 for the series.

Can I confirm you mean Steve Smith?

What do you think he'll do?

Yes, I think he'll average significantly higher than that. His record in England might not be great but best batsmen in the world at the moment.

He's only ever played in an away Ashes Series once, so it's a pretty low base. An average of 38 isn't the worst thing in the world.

Should easier match that at least.

Smith can average 10 for all I care, as long as the others do enough.

Hopefully Watson has a good run against Essex and cements his spot for the whole tour

My team (first test anyway):

Warner
Rogers
Smith
Clarke
Voges
Watson
Haddin
Johnson
Starc
Hazelwood
Lyon

12th Marsh/Harris

I'd normally have Harris in, but maybe needs a bit more match time so Hazelwood just in front of him for me and if Watson doesn't perform, Marsh in for second test as straight swap.

Your England team, hawkesy?

England have named their squad for the 1st test. As above (minus KP obviously) plus Finn and Rashid.

Irrelevant. One found guilty and punished. The others not guilty so not hard to figure out.
