    True but to be perfectly honest I don't think that he is the right player for the test squad. Mitchell Johnson is quick and has the edge over Ashley Noffke in my opinion so I doubt that he (Ashley Noffke) is easily better than Mitchell Johnson.

    I'll go Johnson.

    I reckon Noffke is just a good first class bowler who doesn't have anything special to work with in the International game.

    As opposed to Johnson who's just a good club bowler with nothing to offer in the First-Class game?

    Noffke. At least he has proven himself at first class level where as Johnson hasn't really done anything special. However If I was going to pick an attack I would have Bracken ahead of both of them

    Seriously i have always rated Johnson as a long term prospect for Australia and i still think he can be an awesome bowler in every form of the game, but as far as as test cricket is concerned he is just not looking good enough at the moment, he would have to learn to move the ball both ways if he wants to survive, he needs variations like slower balls and yorkers too to keep the batsmen guessing, but all he is doing atm is hitting the deck hard and to make it worse his lines have been all over the place, so i would presist with him in Odi's and T20, but for test cricket i would look at likes of Noffke, Bollinger or even Tait (if he shows good form in domestic cricket this summer), and give Johnson time to work on his for the longer format of the game.

    Hmm. Johnson's action is quite unusual, he can get good shape away from right-handers even on a flat deck when the ball isn't swinging. I suppose that's why they've persevered with him. But if he has no variation and keeps getting his lines wrong, Noffke's the better bowler by a distance.

    It'll be interesting to see how he comes back after a rest. he bowled reasonably well v SL, and early on v India he did an OK job. By the time the WI rolled around, he looked tired and his action was really ragged. Maybe he didn't cope well with the extra work load of bowling in tests for the first time, as well as ODIs.

    I'd like to be able to fast forward 12 months to see if he can swing the red ball in England. If he can, the tour could make him. Conversely, .....

    Tino Best is quicker than Jerome Taylor. Spot the better bowler.
