I only say that because of how much the importance of the Gabba test is to the Aussies. They lose that, they've lost their "banker". Agreed on the tiredness from back to back tests, but yeah, Johnson may lose his place. Maybe for another spinner actually, im surprised Ponting hasn't thrown the ball to Marcus North more. Hilfenhaus has been over used, i bet he'll open later.

It's shaping up to be interesting, nevertheless.

I can't wait for the second test - will be interesting to see if the changes will help the Aussies.

I can't help but think they might bounce back and beat us in this one. :(

I was a little worried about the weather, luckily I needn't have been! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Who will they replace Broad with, do we think?

And who on Earth will be in the Aussie team next week!?

Hauritz will be in for Dougherty for the Aussies. He also got a 5 fer this weekend in Aussies state cricket. Where? same pitch as the next test, Perth...

England's batting will convinced the selectors to take a risky move on Tremlett i think, bowls in a similar fashion to Broad, and he will get you wickets with the old ball on a flat track by banging it down hard.

Bresnan the "safer" option, bit more controlled, better with the bat.

I'd like to see Tremlett tbh.

Given it's likely to be him or Bresnan I really really hope they give Tremlett the chance.

Bresnan just isn't good enough for test level.

The Aussies are also forced to replace the injured opener, Katich, and what are the odds of them changing their seam attack again?

I agree it'll most likely be Hauritz, could be worrying for Pietersen. :P
