The Ashes burneth

Michael Jackson is dead, long live the Ashes! With eight hours till the start of the first-ever England v Australia Test to be played on neutral soil, allow me to be pessimistic as well as distasteful:

England will win two Tests. Australia might win two, thus retaining the Ashes.

However, I think they'll win one. Whether this allows Strauss, Collingwood, Flintoff et al to be promoted from MBE's to OBE's is something I won't predict.
