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.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
Things could change after this Test, Hussey's really the only Australian who'd walk into a combined side at the minute.
