So it's not a thread about cremation then?

England strong favourites Hardy-but sure you'd nevber know, it's a funny old game at the end of the day and you'll always need a bit of luck

I fancy the English to retain the ashes maybe with a 2-2 or 3-1 series score. KP and Swanny to be the main men!

I don't understand how England are favourites, admittedly they are a better team but they will be playing on wickets, where historically they have been unable to get any swing movement.  That will leave their attack almost completely toothless
