i reckon australia will win the 1st test provided the wicket's got a bit of juice.its gut feel more than anything but australia in recent memory have still been better starters than england,they tend to fizzle away as the series goes along largely due to the fact that they havn't been able to keep their best 4 bowlers fit for the duration of an entire series,over 5 high intensity test matches that trends likely to continue.expect england on the other hand to iron out their flaws and get better and better as we move into the business end,the 3rd 4th and 5th tests
