I'm tipping Johnson will be a slight disapointment with both bat and ball, still doing ok just not as amazingly as some seem to be expecting. I think Siddle will overshadow him and be the bowler of the series.
It's too unpredictable with Hughes, he's a great talent and his lead-up form is superb, but he does still have some obvious shortcomings in his game and he's also never really faced top-quality spin (unless you'd call Harris top drawer, and even he made Hughes look pretty unsure of himself at times in South Africa). That said if they bowl poorly to him (ie give him any width) he'll make runs for fun. I'd be equally unsuprised if Hughes scores 450+ runs or if he is a complete flop.
The guys just seems hungry for runs through any means necessary. Big plus, in my view.

Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
