I reckon they should go for a 4 pace attack. I think, given the circumstances, the best team would be:
Katich (if he can't play, Hughes)
***Not sure about who would make the 4th pace bowler. There are so many potential options so its a pretty difficult choice to make. Harris was impressive before, and Siddle looks in very good form as well. Then there are the new guys like George (who I frankly wasn't that impressed with) and Hazlewood (don't know if he'll be fit, plus I wasn't that impressed with him either in the ODI). But then you've also got other domestic players like Copeland and Cameron who look mightily impressive. I'd almost be inclined to pick one of the latter, just as an x-factor for the English, who would know nothing much of their style. Also, if they got smashed around, then there are always the three more experienced guys to rely on, plus Shane Watson if needed.
