    Choose Australia's attack for the Ashes

    Stemming on from the Brett Lee thread, please select the best bowling line-up to take on the Poms in England.

    If all are fit and have some proper cricket matches under their belt (not IPL or any of that ****) I would run with.

    Lee
    Johnson
    Siddle
    Clark
    Watson

    Clarke
    Katich

    If we need to remove a paceman for a spinner, remove Lee for McGain.

    Should be pretty straightforward:

    Watson (if fit)/North
    Lee
    Johnson
    Siddle
    Clark

    12th: McGain
    13th: Hilfenhaus

    The only thing wrong is that we haven't really gauged McGain yet to see what he can do. Be kinda risky to play him in England if we 'just want a spinner in the team'.

    Until both Lee and Clark prove there fitness and show age hasn't caught up with them:

    Johnson
    Siddle
    Hilfenenhaus (If conditions suit him, he may have a massive Ashes series)
    Bollinger / McGain

    Given our current resources, this is the bowling lineup I will be happy to see play the 1st test. Lee and Clark still have a role to play, but they must show there fitness has returned before they can return to the lineup.

    Think if Lee and Clark are fit and show some form both should play. Clark especially has the kind of style made for our conditions.

    I can see the temptation to omit the specialist spinner, particularly when there are three semi-decent part-timers in the upper order but always like a proper twirler myself so have gone for McGain, despite never having seen him play.

    So:

    (McDonald) - if 5 man attack deemed necessary
    Lee
    Johnson
    Clark
    McGain
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    I'd like to see Natalie Imbruglia and Kylie Minogue open the attack with Rolf Harris and Jason Donovan the third and fourth seamers - that would leave Clive James as the best spinning option.
    I'm still not convinced we'd win but at least there might be someone wearing more jewellery that Kevin Pietersen.
