    Ideally I'd like England to walk all over Australia, now that pretty much the whole England team are in good form, having contributed with the bat/ball/both.

    Although I think (for comedy value) Vaughan should urge the nation to start doing rain dances in hope that the last test be washed out imagine what we'd end up with?

    S. Jones looks doubtful for the last test. Who do you reckon will replace him?

    I HATE THAT!
    I also HATE how Shane Warne always makes some kind of grunt just as the batsman hits the ball. He's obviously doing it deliberately to put them off!!

    You guys are forgetting how much of a loss Simon Jones would be, look at the bowling statistics for England over course of the Ashes series (in order of overs, maidens, runs, wickets and average):


    Simon Jones - 102.0 - 17 - 378 - 18 - 21.00
    Stephen Harmison - 138.3 - 20 - 462 - 16 - 28.87
    Andrew Flintoff - 160.0 - 22 - 577 - 19 - 30.36
    Matthew Hoggard - 98.0 - 13 - 376 - 12 - 31.33
    Ashley Giles - 137.0 - 17 - 502 - 10 - 50.20
    Ian Bell - 7.0 - 2 - 20 - 0 - N/A
    Michael Vaughan - 5.0 - 0 - 21 - 0 - N/A

    He averages nearly 8 runs less in getting a wicket than any of the other bowlers. That's Glenn McGrath standard. Only Flintoff has taken more wickets than him (and he's bowled far more!).

    I can do the 100 in 11.9, but that was like 2 years ago.

    Yes, I can see a heavy defeat looming as well, but Sione Faumuina is coming for the Wakefield game, i'm hearing he's a very good player.

    I know this is cricket but in sport I wouldn't use stats as total gospel because I can give you plenty of examples when some team has defied the stat book in football, for example.
