Broad won't get his 1 wicket needed this year.
Anderson needs 4 wickets for 200 and 2 gets him 50 Test wickets in a year.
Finn needs 9 wickets for his 50 and also would give him 50 Tests wickets in a year.
And now they face new ones.

The aussies getting desperate with fans calling for warne to be recalled. what lunatic world do these supporters live on. one website has even raised over $4,000 to get him to come back! that money is going straight into the pocket of the person who set the website up as it's clearly a non starter in terms of any possible chance of a warne return.

Don't want to tempt fate, but since WW2 only two England captains (Hutton and Brearley) have successfully defended the Ashes in Australia. I'm trying to find a list of those who managed this feat before the War but Statsguru's not much help.

[Painfully slow research reveals Percy Chapman did it in 1928-9, having taken over the last Test of the 1926 series when Arthur Carr went down with tonsillitis. Chapman didn't play in the last Test of the away series, and Jack White took over as captain, but the Ashes had already been retained at that point.]

[UPDATE: Chapman seems to have been the only other captain to manage it since the start of the 20th century.]

Still time for the New Year's Honours if they win the next test!

Doesn't it say something about him that he didn't? Remember, Cameron's background is in media PR. There's hardly any other job that's more about presentation and spin and less about substance. Except maybe being a Turner Prize winning artist.

My Ashes optimism is suddenly waning. Broad is injured and his potential replacements have only taken one wicket between them in 74 overs against a state side. As the series goes on the loss of Broad will make itself felt. Anderson might start the Perth test suffering from jet lag. Our on song batsmen could all revert to normal in the blink of an eye. Cook was out for 27 after his mammoth innings in the first two tests; plainly he is exhausted and should have been rested. Why Trott and not him?

Trott might be being given time with his wife and baby daughter who have just gone out there.

Calm down dear. I admit to being a little worried about England's attack but I don't think we should be too concerned about the lack of wickets against Victoria. If catches had been held things would look a lot brighter. I'm not remotely concerned about the batting (Collingwood aside) so that probably means a devastating collapse is on the cards!

There's also a bit of a logic fail in being worried about the first XI attack, just because the second XI attack failed in one innings. Only one of them is going to be picked; Swann, Anderson and Finn will still be there.

Also Broad has not been effective at taking wickets in the tests so a good economical bowler would be a like for like replacement for him at the moment.
