can't see how people would go for Jimmy over Vernon unless its a sub cont track. Anderson is basically Steyn lite imo Philander will offer something different.

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Can a rest of the world pace attack stand up to SA's? (3 seamers)
So, who's getting the new ball out of Steyn, Anderson and Philander?
I would say Vern and Jimmy as Steyn is the better old ball bowler? Certainly Vern has to have it really as that's the only real time he's demonstrated his ability so far.
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
I think Steyn can probably adapt to first change better, as he did it reasonably well against England, so that's probably how I would go. Also if you've got two left handed openers, which is reasonably common, then you'd probably prefer Philander and Anderson bowled with the ball at its newest.
Steyn / Anderson / Starc / Ajmal..sorry 5lander
I would also give Anderson and Philanderer the new ball since Steyn is so good with the old ball, plus he gets angry when the ball gets older and increases his speed.
Angry Steyn is awsome to watch (but not when Pak is batting).
ROW v RSA attack
Starc/Junaid (jury is still out)
I would say RSA's lineup is better than my ROW lineup despite having an average spinner.
ROW vs SA
Anderson vs Steyn
Pattinson vs Philander
Starc/Siddle/Harris vs Morkel
Ajmal vs Petersen
Watson vs Kallis
ROW wins in my eyes. Better spinner, better fifth bowler, better third pacer.
Okay, so can anyone tell me who exactly are the first choice quicks in the Australian test team at the moment. The contenders seem to be:
Starc, Pattinson, Siddle, Bird, Johnson, Hilfenhaus, Ryan Harris and Cummins (is he around anymore?).
Bird had a fantastic debut. Johnson made a good comeback. Pattinson was their best bowler before injury. Starc looks very exciting. Siddle is a monster we all know. Hilf may have to give way. Harris was pretty great too as far as I can remember.
