    Clarke to open, Steve Smith into the middle order?

    Starc for Lee, or will they go for X-Factor tattoo man Johnson?

    Apparently the left handed x factor who bowls well in the nets was 'unavailable for selection' last night.

    I think this game might be a case of who's fit will play.

    Warner
    Wade
    Forrest
    Clarke
    Bailey
    Hussey
    Smith
    Pattinson
    McKay
    Hilfenhaus
    Doherty/Johnson

    As a sedge way Mr Twizzlestick you have a look at our fielding in general. That is one area we have slipped in in the last few years and it looks even worse without Ponting and M Hussey.

    Clarke must bat no lower than 3.

    Segue.

    The only good thing that can come out of this series is the long overdue axing of Xavier Doherty. I'd rather stop midway through a piss than watch this scrub inexplicably represent Australia. It would be less painful.

    Mitch Johnson now comes out, on the eve of a game in England, and says that the Barmy Army taunts 'really hurt him'.

    Show how mentally f**king weak some of these Aussie cricketers are. They honestly beleive they are royalty and make the world a better place.

    If Australia is any chance of fighting its way back to the top, we need Steve Waugh and Allan Border type players, strong minded players.

    Instead we have f**king pretty boys.

    Give us a chance in this one.

    No selfish wanker at the top of the order to throw balance off.
