    I tell you what...

    I'm a massive Clarke fanboy as everyone knows, but if he doesn't score second dig his place will seriously come into question - although we have to drop North first

    It seems like for this test we finally have gotten our act together. After Pontings 2nd innings 365 and Harris' 8/15, Australia can really feel like they're on top of England after such a resounding win again in Adelaide.

    If Marcus North plays this Test, all my faith in the Aussie selectors would be gone and I may just stop watching cricket altogether.

    Especially if the deck is shuffled again with the pace attack.

    Dunno about that

    Ponting's FCA was only 349 and Harris would only have gotten 7 if Eng had not used up all their referrals on the first 2 balls of the innings

    If North scores a ton and is pivotal in drawing this match, he can stay in the team as far as I'm concerned.

    Katich is injured, get Hughes in.

    Hughes > Kaitch in:
    - Test Average
    - Test SR
    - Age
    - Better Test 50/100 conversion rate
    - Test High score
    - Better runner between the wickets
    - Smiles hard all day
    - Lots of heart
    - Has just 2 less sixes whilst playing 48 less matches

    Hughes > Everyone in:
    - Youngest player to make 2 centuries in 1 Test
    - Shield Record = greatest two-innings contribution to a team's game total
    - And he can play this shot

    How bout this line-up for the WACA:

    Watson
    Katich
    Ponting
    Clarke
    Hussey
    Khawaja
    North (spinner)
    Haddin
    Johnson (in for Siddle because of his extra pace)
    Harris
    Bollinger

    You're not seriously suggesting playing North as a specialist spinner are you? Geez, I at least was just having a bit of a laugh, but...

    North is a much better spinner than Doherty.
