If he had of got 95 in the first innings it might have been. I'd say Johnson's & Harris' spells had more influence on the game and Hussey's century in that 2nd innings probably had more to do with the result. So, although a good innings, there were other factors that had more of an influence on that victory.

From a neutral perspective.
Johnson has to be there surely? Considering he was no worse than Swann with the ball but a lot better with the bat.
Other people might value diversity in bowling line-ups higher than me tbf.
I've said it before, but if Johnson was a third bowler behind Tremlett and Anderson I believe that he would be a captain's dream - a bowler who is occasionally capable of winning games himself with both bat and ball.
Johnson - 11 wickets @ 36.27
Swann - 14 wickets @ 37.28
Johnson played one match less and is bowling in an Innings atm
Johnson also has 2 crucial 50s to his name. I know who I'd take.

Looks like neither Swann nor Johnson makes it into mine. Watson over Strauss as they both have done equally well but the former can be a 5th bowling option needed in a line-up with 4 pacers.
You selecting a 5th seamer at the expense of a captain only compounds the error of no spinner.
Here's a hint - cricket isn't just about stats.
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
I'd have Strauss over Watson tbh.
It really shows how ****ty our batting has been from Hussey/Haddin onwards that Bell canters into the side with his three fifties.
+ time's fickle card game ~ with you and i +
Things could change after this Test, Hussey's really the only Australian who'd walk into a combined side at the minute.
