Most runs, England: Jos Buttler, two fifties one hundred. Most runs, Australia: Steve Smith (duh), two fifties two hundreds. Most wickets, England: Stuart Broad through sheer number of matches played, as Jimmy and Chris get rested and Sam doesn't play as many games as he should. Most wickets, Australia: James Pattinson to feast on England's weak top order. Most likely player to be axed after two Tests: Rory Burns, sadly. Most likely surprise debut: Dominic Sibley as an extension of the above. Man of the Series: James Pattinson, drunk on English wickets and celebratory champagne. Result: Australia 3-2 England on boundaries scored having a halfway competent top order, and not just with sandpaper in hand.

Runs Stokes but only with 300 or so Runs Smith with around 450 Wickets... Well, its going to be Anderson or Broad isn't it, they're going to get a min of 16 to 20 overs per game with the new ball across 2 innings, if it isn't one of them they should be fking ashamed of themselves. Wickets aus, Pattinson to destroy our top order Dropping.... I actually think moving to 4 puts denly more at risk as we've loads who can bat middle order, burns only needs 1 half decent score in the first 2 tests and he's in for a while. Random debut may not be a debut if denly tanks and gaz b keeps racking up the runs..... Score, too tough to predict as at least 2 tests will be toss dependant, aus will win tho either 31 or 21

Umpiring is pretty shoddy, but both teams have DRS there and available to use so bloody use it I say! Warner and Pattinson both looked down leg in real time to the naked eye, cannot understand why they didn't question it
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
