Australia should drop ordinary players like Marcus North. He should be replaced by Phil Hughes. Shane Watson should be dropped down the order to no.6 (he bats really well when conditions are favorable for batting) and Tim Paine should be chosen ahead of Brad Haddin. 4 of Siddle, Hilfenhaus, Johnson, Bollinger, Smith and Hauritz should play depending on conditions. The experience of playing against Indian spinners will help Aussies in countering Swann. The Ashes will be close but if Aussies drop North, I think they will win.

The Reverse Sweep

I'd probably agree with you there CricChirrup, I'd be much more concerned as an Englishman if Australia lined up as follows: Hughes, Katich, Watson, Clarke, Ponting, Haddin, Smith, Johnson, Harris/Siddle, Hilfenhaus and Bollinger. Fortunately, the Australian selectors won't do that!


What do you have to do to get a zero? Clarke must have come close.
