    Watson ruled out of Adelaide

    Shane Watson has been ruled out of the second Test against England at Adelaide.

    "Shane Watson continued his rehabilitation this afternoon," Alex Kountouris, the Australia physiotherapist said. "The outcome was that his hamstring injury is still not fully recovered and it was decided that the second Test would be too early a return in the circumstances. His rehabilitation will continue with a view to him being available for selection for the third Test in Perth."

    Makes things simpler and probably spells the death knell for MacGill's hopes of playing at Adelaide.

    I think Clarke needs to do more in Adelaide to justify continuing to retain his spot ahead of Watson once Watson is fit again. Yes he got a 50, but it was out of a score of 9/602 after Ponting, Langer and Hussey had comprehensively beaten the fight out of the English attack. I mean Lee got 45* and Clark 39, so I don't think one nicely made 50 is enough to justify holding out the one real option for a test standard allrounder.

    That will make it a lot easier for the selectors. They'll want three pace bowlers so Clark will definately play and I doubt they'll go with five specialist bowlers so Clarke will stay in the team, with MacGill the unlucky one to miss out.

    Clarke might get to bowl again, but he won't want to mess up his average!

    I'm hoping Monty gets a go in this game. The bowling was poor in the first match and a change needed.

    He'll probably play in Perth, if the wicket is anything like it has been. Two spinners and five bowlers will be necessary to take 20 on that track.

    I would doubt even Dunc would be pig-headed enough to leave Monty out at Adelaide. I'd presume it'd be at Anderson's expense. As awful as Harmison was, he was actually more economical than Jimmy in Brisbane & potentially is the better bowler.

    I'd make sure he knew he was on his last chance though. If he performs anywhere near as badly again he should be out. We don't want to make the same mistake as Australia did with Dizzy last year.

    I know it's easy to be wise after the event, but looking at the sort of surfaces that we're likely to be bowling on I can't help but think Broad or Tremlett might've had more success than Anderson or Plunkett will. Both tall & can get decent bounce (like Clark) &, in Tremlett's case, appreciably quicker as a bonus too.

    This is what I'm expecting

    ------------
    Jones
    Giles
    Harmison
    Hoggard
    Panesar

    Anderson will be the man to miss out, England will stick with Harmison

    If he keeps taking 7 wickets a game, why would you drop him? If he fails consistently on certain types of pitches, then you decide to only play him on certain pitches. But after the guy takes 7 wickets, you have got to give him that chance IMO.
