    Siddle.


    If everyone was fit then Pattinson, Siddle, Harris would be my preferred bowling lineup - although it feels like Harris is semi-retired even though he's just injured. It will be interesting to see how much he actually plays in 2013. The next group are all fairly level pegging imo (Hilfenhaus/Cummins/Johnson/Starc/Hazlewood).

    Siddle.

    tbh I've always thought Hilfenhaus was overrrated. His performance against India last summer was a bit of a freak result (and perhaps as misleading as Ponting's was in the same series). I think apart from that series he's only taken 5 wickets or more in a Test once in his career.

    He has good qualities for sure, but he's a strike bowler who bowls like a stock bowler. Would have to be one of the blandest new ball bowlers Australia has ever had. Apart from the India series the only time I can recall Hilfenhaus being decisive in a new-ball spell was Brisbane 09/10 (I think he may have had an impact in one spell in the WI earlier this year as well).

    Otherwise, it's endless short of a length stuff that keeps runs down but rarely threatens to take a wicket.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Hilf seems to have lost something this summer. He is keeping his arm really low, and doesn't seem to be swinging it.

    Hilfy needs a new coach. He's just bowling it too short, which is from the Sharma school of "looking good but being ineffective".

    I'd take Siddle right now.
