    You'll miss him at Perth if that's the case.

    Would you select a batsman because he scores good on one particular ground?

    Bowlers are a lot more condition reliant than batsmen though.

    Johnson at Perth is probably the best bowler in the world.

    I can only see Johnson playing test cricket again if the new brigade of bowlers have shockers and he storms it in shield games. Will likely play ODIs due to his allr ound abilities.

    Johnson was meant to be unplayable in SA too.

    Will find it very hard to get back if he is out for the Summer.

    Averages 57 this year, and the selectors have already flagged their intention to 'go young' at least with the quicks anyway.

    Correction. Johnson bowling well at Perth is probably the best bowler in the world. As is Johnson bowling well in South Africa.

    Johnson bowling poorly, which happens far more often, is complete rubbish.

    If your bowlers bowl well, then more often than not they look good. It doesn't really matter who they are or where they are playing.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to a summer where we don't have to wait for Mitch to become a 'matchwinner' once a series (or once every 12 months). Good to see the other guys getting a go.

    He does normally destroy everyone on the rare occasions when he plays shield cricket for WA though doesn't he? The Perth thing is obviously not a pure coincidence.

    You never know maybe a few months out then next season smashing it in domestic cricket might do him good.

    Reckon that thing about Johnson being an asset because he destroys the opposition once every year is pretty overrated tbh. It mainly seems like he is such an amazing bowler, because relative to the other **** he throws up, it is mindboggingly better. If you think about it though, pretty much every bowler has at least one awesome performance a year - it might not be as spectacular as Johnson's, but nevertheless it still usually amounts to excellent figures for the match (and is usually match winning). Contrastingly though, most other bowlers can provide more consistency in between the peaks and troughs, where as Johnson simply can't.

    Johnson at Perth is the same as Johnson in South Africa... (as noted above)
