Shane Warne says Ashes year could be a classic as Michael Clarke's new-look Australians grow together - TelegraphThe spin bowling department is not as heavily stocked. Nathan Lyon is doing an OK job.
He started slowly this Australian summer but has picked up. He will bowl pretty well in England but there is little back up.
There could be a bolter as a second spinner. A guy called Brad Young has just returned in the Big Bash. He is a 39-year-old left-arm spinner who last played for Australia in a one-day international in 1999.
