    The next 3 ODIs will give the selectors a good look at Johnson. If he picks up key wickets the writing is on the wall.

    So if we subscribe to the Benchmark school of thought, Australia needs another swing bowler to replace Starc. The next best option on that front is probably Sayers, who has demonstrated the ability to bowl effective swing during his FC career and he has A tour experience.

    I'd be ok with that but I suspect decent ODI bowling will, unfortunately, give MJ the inside running.

    I had a cabbie the other night who was Gurinder Sandhu's cousin. Picketing for his selection just to be three degrees of separation away from a Test cricketer.

    The reality of our quicks is that it's become Siddle plus the 2 next not injured. With that being a test by test proposition. If Harris and Bird are ok then Harris, Siddle and Bird for Brisbane. Patto in for Bird if he is match fit. There's no reason to rush him in if he's underdone.

    Absolutely, I used to be more a fan of Cutting but since Sayers start a couple yaers ago I think he's on a short list for most. I hope anyway.

    The final bowling position for the 1st test could be won in Steven Bradbury-like fashion.

    I would definitely play Hilf in front of Johnson if it came to it. As was said on the previous page, the worse thing about Johnson is he is a massive softcock. We already have enough of those in our batting ranks, we don't need them in our bowling as well. In fact, our bowling is generally full of macho men like Harris, Siddle, Pattinson etc. He would be bullied by his own team mates if he came back.
