Harris, Siddle, Hilfenhaus, Johnson, Pattinson, Cummins, Starc, Bollinger, Copeland
As much as everyone thinks that Johnson has played his last Test with a new crop of young fast bowlers Australia have found I think he will be back for the Ashes.
Harris, Pattinson, Cummins will be injured. Even Siddle might be worn out by then.
Can I borrow that crystal ball of yours? Would love to know how you could predict four injuries 18 months out.

Ian Chappell: Watson and Haddin should go to the West Indies | Opinion | Cricinfo Magazine | ESPN Cricinfo
Totally agree with Chappell there on the Watson stuff.
Would be dancing jigs of delight if Haddin's still in the test XI come 2013, tbh. Wade's keeping must be rustic in the extreme if Haddin's is considered a virtue next to it.
Also think Chappelli isn't seeing the wood for the trees with Watson. Yes, he & Warner could be a destructive opening pair, but with Marsh almost literally unable to score a run, to me #3 looks the obvious fit for him.

He said he would think about putting him at 3 though, but only if there is a better opener than him available. Cowan's position is hardly in concrete, and there are definately doubts as to whether he'll be good enough in the long term. There is some uncertainty over Warner as well tbh. Honestly don't think it would make much difference if he is an opener or first drop anyhow, but the important point for me is that he has a role primarily as a batsmen.
Haddin won't be there in 2013. If the WI tour was on post-next round of CA contracts he wouldn't make it there either. But because it starts like 5 days after the tri series finishes he'll probably well.
