    England have doctored the pitch at Old Trafford to negate warnes effect based on McGrath and Lee being out. Lee is fine, McGrath is bowling and has no pain, even 6 hours after his second session in a day. Both are 90%+ to play. It will suit one or the other completely and we will rip through them.

    I hope so Fluffy. To lose the Ashes is something I just can't contemplate!

    Dunno about that. Their four pronged pace attack has more overall speed and bounce than ours.

    If the ball is moving McGrath will have a field day though.

    McGrath and Lee were both on the big sprts breakfast this morning saying that they would play. McGrath was intervied at around 10:30pm his time have bowled 2 full sessions that day and had no pain and no pain killers so its a fairly good assumption, Lee has been on full training for a few days and is not in doubt.

    Warne will turn it no matter what anyway.

    The ball will either be moving (harmison) or bouncing (flintoff) which will suit McGrath and Lee respectivly.

    and CW im with you - Martyn needs to pull his finger out and do something in this one, has dont SFA for ages again.

    A fluffy post wouldn't be the same without a Martyn payout. I personally think Hayden is more of a concern atm.
