My prediction:

A result all 5 tests under 4 days. It will be battle of the bowlers with the swinging duke as both batting line ups are below par.

Our line up:

Harris
Warner
Smith
Labuschagne
Head
??
Paine
Cummins
Starc
Hazlewood
Lyon

12th Richardson

I don't think you can play Khawaja on form. Opens the door for a Patterson to keep his spot. Big county games coming up few a few batsman leading up to the Ashes.

The trouble is that other nations have followed our suit and will make us play Sunday league teams to give us a false sense of confidence.

That why they are going to have an Aus v Aus A tour game whilst over there, to guarantee some sort of a quality hit out. For a change its a bloody good idea by Cric Aus
If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

Sure is, hopefully they mix it up so we don't lose to our #2 side.

I know the WC is on, but I would guarantee we'd be a much better chance of retaining the Ashes if we had six 4-day tour games against good county teams before the first test like back in the old days.

So does the ECB that's why it will never happen.

We gave India a 4 day tour match against a CAXI for practice heading into the 1st test.

Had a giggle at a paragraph in the 'tiser quickly this morning waiting for my coffee.. was something along the lines of:

"Meredith also should be in the squad, i watched him in the BBL and he went for 23 off his first over, but he just had an off day" :lol:
