Just for fun, some absolutely baseless predictions:

Debut test hundred for Taylor
Five-fors for Finn and Piedt, the latter far more expensive
Hales to make 30 and next to nothing again
Cook and Root and Amla and Faf all to fail again
At least two run-outs in the match

I'll gloat ridiculously if any of these happen
lol....Faf and AB are a disaster in the running stakes
I like Finn - he can go about a bit but he takes wickets
Hales - Yes I agree
Taylor - I hope so
Cook and Root, dont forget Root averaged nearly 50 in the first test, un-noticed (especially by Botham lol) by most but Cookie is class and he will have his day
