You have to remember that the style of bowling MJ has used in these two games, while effective, is also the style of bowling Australia has removed itself from since it failed so often in 08-09-10. When it comes to keeping it full, as per bowling coach policy, MJ has failed badly in this respect. A great deal of his impact in these games have come from short balls. As opposed to Starc in his two games, who was bowling full so often some people were criticising him for it, and had a great deal of his impact come from yorkers. Which is you know sorta the policy. I actually think it's really easy to drop MJ from the next game because of this. Simply, when it comes to conforming to the new style of Australian bowling, he failed. Of course, when you're 6 bowlers down or whatever there's nothing wrong with picking MJ and just telling him to bowl in the most effective manner he can, but on the flip side, when some of those bowlers recover, there's wrong with dumping MJ and citing the bowling policy as reason why.

Starc is more reliable than Johnson at this stage because Starc does what the bowling coach wants
**** sake Ruckus, stop posting.
where the PEWS bot at???
didn't realise the bowling coach was such a pie connoisseur
bowling coach is well aware that by asking the bowlers to bowl full, you're risking them getting smashed through the covers. bowling coach is willingly to risk that. so starc's pies get over-looked a bit, particularly if he later delivers in the same match

Also the bowling coach calls himself just that, sorta like the weapon
