I probably carried on a bit about Johnson, he isn't in the XI yet. Unfortunately with the stupidity with the selectors over the past decade or so, it wouldn't surprised me if they selected him.

But why go with four seamers + Watson as extra bowler? Don't they trust his body? NZ is finally showing some class with the bat, Tim Southee has excellent swing.

Johnson is rubbish. They may as well fly me to Perth if they're going to pick Johnson.

I'd like to see Starc or any of the other young quicks that aren't injured get a go.

After the way you put the Kiss Of Death on Michael Clarke, I half expect Johnson to now go out and have 5 10 wicket matches in a row

I do agree though, Johnson is just far too inconsistent to be an opening bowler at test level.

Watson won't bowl. He will only be there to do what Quiney and Ponting haven't been able to do. Score runs. Depending on the pitch, they might drop the spinner and include an extra fast bowler.

Ponting retires...no massive surprise. Great batsman.
