    I'm doing pretty well, by using the uncomplicated tactic of picking 9/11 England players. However, one of my two Australians (Harris) is injured and I feel like I should at least put an Aussie in instead of him. Hmmm... who to choose?

    My quandry exactly. Have replaced Harris with Mitchell, under the assumption that he can at least get some points with the bat if he doesn't bowl well, and after hesitating to drop Punter my hand has been forced, so Bell comes in.

    Managed to get Siddle and Jimmy in for Harris and Finn by downgrading KP to Hussey. Hope it's not a mistake.

    I think I've done pretty well considering I've been carrying Ponting and Clarke all series and refused to pick the best opener available. Then again you could probably say the same about Australia's Ashes campaign.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Do I contradict myself?
