    You're actually going to include someone in the overall XI who was dropped part way through the series?

    When that player has scored two half centuries and taken a nine wicket haul mostly of top order batsmen then yes, I would.

    I'm also including Tremlett, who was deemed "not good enough" in the first two tests.

    No real difference.

    The difference is Johnson bowled utter crap, whereas Tremlett didn't bowl at all.

    Hardly Siddle's fault. Johnson had support from the rest of the quicks at Perth. Siddle was a one man band at Melbourne and Brisbane.

    Prior over Haddin anyone?

    Hussey the only Aussie in my side now and he's lucky I don't pick Colly for his bowling

    Definitely Prior > Haddin for me now.

    Yeah, must agree also. Although that could change if Haddin has a big 2nd innings.

    He's batted well this innings...but the pressure's been way off. Haddin's big innings was when the pressure was on.
    5-0

    You'd have to say though that the difference in keeping is more than enough to tip the scales.

    You can only bat when enough wickets fall, it's hardly a detriment to Prior that the men above him have feasted.

    Haven't noticed either keeper much, they both looked to be keeping pretty well to my non-expert eye.

    Prior has come into his own now, but his runs have tended to be in the context of ramming home an advantage rather than, as in Haddin's case, digging his team out of the mire. Both are important roles but I'd say that Haddin's runs have been that little bit more vital to his team.

    My composite XI:

    Cook (c)
    Watto
    Trott
    Penisen

    Cricket
    Bell
    Haddin (w)
    Bresnan
    Swann
    Tremlett
    Anderson

    Watson out, unless you want half the batting order run out.

    Except when they didn't he didn't. Haddin still scored runs when other batsmen didn't feast.

    Prior's kept pretty well, but the gap between his and Haddin's isn't as stark as you might claim.
