So its nearly New Years where I am. I’m sitting with a few friends who are on their phones, so I am doing the laptop equivalent. We’re so exciting, I know.

The upcoming cricketing year will be anything but boring, though. England will go into it holding the no 1 Test spot, but will an aging India manage to continue relying on top performances from their aging stars? Will South Africa get their act together and perform to their potential? Will Australia rediscover the famous “Aussie grit?” Will Pakistan manage a drama-free year? Will Sri Lanka build on their first win for 18 months? Will New Zealand’s young players continue to develop positively? Will the West Indies find stability in life after Chris Gayle? Will Bangladesh and Zimbabwe upset any stronger nations, and will they create solid platforms for the future?

Look out for a 9-piece series on my 2012 thoughts, previews and predictions for the top 8 Test nations and the Test minnows.

Happy New Year to all readers. What are your cricketing predictions for the upcoming year?
