    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.

    I almost made a big post about why I thought Usman's selection in this test was a terrible one, kinda similar to Hastings or if SOK all of a sudden got picked, but I decided to hold off, in fear of another #BoxingDayTaste.

    Yeah he bowled very well later on that match, but wasn't anything special beforehand. Add to that, the match before which was some of the worst bowling I've seen, and which played a significant part in us losing that match so badly, and I fail to see how Starc can be seen as any more reliable than Johnson at this stage.

    Starc is more reliable than Johnson at this stage because Starc does what the bowling coach wants

    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
