Looking good so far. No predictions about Pietersen wrecking the dressing room spirit though?

5-0 England.

We'll see who's laughing in January.
Although my first scoreline was correct, I feel my second prediction has been vindicated also. The magnitude by which England won their matches demonstrates that they were superior enough to be capable of administering a whitewash. If they had not collapsed in the first innings at Brisbane and dismissed the Aussie tail cheaply at Perth they could have well returned the favour of 06/07.

Got the bowlers right, but not the batsmen. As Cook was going through his lean spell over the summer, I thought his back foot style would do better down under, but I'd never have thought this much better! What a fabulous performance.

Sorry, but guessing after the series is over doesn't count.

Well, I got the scoreline right. Just picked the wrong team...

If only I'd stuck with Johnson and not been seduced by the hairless one. Perhaps it's because I've noticed my own hairline just starting to recede.

I was going to praise you for picking Cook when no-one else did but then noticed your picture and allegiances so am attributing your choice to partisanship rather than acumen.

I got the winners right and Johnson. In my heart I knew it would be Jimmy but never pick him for fear of jinxing him!

Delighted to be wrong on just about every prediction there, with the exception of Melbourne.

I think the first innings collapse in Brisbane wouldn't even have mattered if there hadn't been that freak partnership between Hussey and Haddin. Outside of that, Australia batted even worse in Brisbane than England.
