    Has batted top 6 for SA for the last season and a bit before that I think (did reasonably well) but before that, batted 7 or 8. Definitely should not be batting at 7 in the Test side.

    I think if weather is good, Australia will win in Headingley.

    For Oz: Stuart C in for Hauritz.All seam attack
    .
    If Oz don't win at H'dingley,they will lose the Ashes.
    5th Test will probably be a draw.
    Just checked the scorecard at The Oval...scores of 593-5 vs 600 for 4.

    ....Right its time AUS play 4-seamers. Hauritz has not disgracred himself in this series, but he hasn't improved the bowling attack. The only way i'd keep Haurtiz is IF Watson can bowl, which he ATM it really looks like he's becoming a batsman who can bowl a bit, since those 3 overs he bowled where disgraceful.

    AUS need 4 STRONG bowling options, since lets be straight up with Bopara/Bell 3&4, AUS really should not be allowing ENG to score 350+ so often.

    Watson
    Katich
    Ponting
    Hussey
    Clarke
    North
    Haddin/Manou - injury precaution of course ATS
    Lee
    Johnson/Siddle
    Clark
    Hilfy

    Johnson/Siddle - Who plays depends on if Haddin is fit. If Haddin is fit, drop Johnson because we can do without his lower order batting. If Haddin aint fit, i'd be willing to keep him since i like his heat in the 3rd test.

    PS - Looking forward to the ODI set-up & T20, Watson's lack of bowling really affects the balance of those teams as well. Damn yo


    ENG are pretty safe dont expect any chances, until the 5th test when Harmo or Sibebottom will finally come in to replace Broad, sheesh..

    We need to decide which three fast-bowlers we're gonna play at Headingley, and if we pick the right one's then there won't be any need to play with 4 seamers, and not to mention its something that's very likely to backfire considering the kind of flat and dry pitches we he have seen across UK this summer.

    Hauritz bowled beautifully at Edgbaston, though he might just have one wicket to show for it, but his control and his variations of pace were excellent, and he is a must in for the rest of the series, as he provides Ponting with both variation and control.

    Though keeping the context of the series in mind, he should just use some injections to get his hand numb and get on with it at Headingley, but eventually it all depends on how serious his injury really is.

    We've finally got a spin bowler bowling well after TWO years and you want to drop him? I wouldn't have selected him before the series and am on record being pretty harsh in relation to him but there's no logic in dropping Haurrie after the past three Tests. Should be given an AO if anything.
