    Would like it to be South Africa, but their track record would say otherwise.

    Will most likely be India, their teams are gaining a lot of experience from the IPL

    Im surprised this thread isnt about the Ashes.... But it is best to avoid that topic.

    My bet would be India. Pakistan would have a chance I guess.

    According to the most recent rankings. Sri Lanka is no1 for T20's.

    The way South Africa has demolished India's bowling attack in each of the last three ODI's suggests that India probably does not have the strict bowling attack needed.

    South Africa stands a good chance, but will they choke as always?

    What's the last question you would want me to ask in this sig?

    India has never had a good bowling attack. Their batting is above par and thats what gets them too. Opposite true of Pakistan. Rubbish batting and brilliant bowling.

    For T20's you need good batting and bowling. You need to be able to compensate with one if the other is having a bad they. You can't just rely on one front to keap pulling you through

    India won last T20 with equally as average bowlers I believe. Their batting is that good.

    Swann's resignation half way through this Ashes test. Should he have seen it out?

    Im kind of gutted to see him go, to be honest, I know this Ashes test has been pretty horrendous, but still... that's not exactly going to help the morale and ergo the dignity of the rest of the team, is it?

    I was pretty shocked when I saw it... I havnt seen any mention that his injury has being aggravated. Its a bit strange for him to stop playing half way through the series.

    At least Panesar will get a game now

    Hoping Panesar will lead us to at least 1 win this Ashes... Theyre reminding us why this test happens pretty heavily.

    Im not holding on to much hope of England winning a test...

    I think a draw might be doable but a win looks hard. It would be nice to bat first in the next test match.

    It started off bad, then we had a good day. And then it went bad again

    Im not holding out any hope for the 5th match.

    I've already put a bet on the whitewash

    I'm so glad that I came to Australia to watch the cricket.

    England 14-3 chasing 326-10.

    So worth the £...

    Oh wow... I knew you were in Australia but I didnt think you were going to watch it.

    I am staying to watch it tonight but England are playing terribly.

    Its how the trip came about. I was sat at uni with a couple of mates and an advert came on tv for the ashes in Australia. We were like, 'we should go' and booked tickets that night. The downer was we expected England to at least win one match so booked 3 days at Melbourne and 3 days at Sydney. Little did we know England would have already lost by that point.

    It takes some of the enjoyment out of it when your whole trip is centered around the cricket, not really holidaying or backpacking but somewhere in between while you wait for the next test, and then your team fail to perform. I guess on the bright side I got to watch Piers Morgan live while he got bowled at by Brett Lee in the nets.
