I'm not sure that long a break is necessarily a good thing for Mitch, as it has been said so many times, he is the kind of bowler who needs a lot of overs behind him, to hit his straps and bowl well.
Though that break is good for the likes of Hilfy, Clarke, Norfy to freshen up and rejuvenate themselves, as they have been the guys who done most of work for us through this series, and they definitely would benifit from bit of a rest.
The break would also ensure that Haddin too gets enough time to heal his broken/fractured finger, but everything said and done, I don't think Ponting and boys would ideally like this long a break, considering the kind of momentum they have on their side atm.
