    Does anyone expect any surprises in the selection of the Aussie XI ? Hauritz will go, it just depends on whether they decide to go with 4 quicks and Symonds' offies, or a specialist spinner in Krazyman. Personally I'd like to see them dump Simmo for Watson and pick Krejza for Hauritz.

    Also think the Saffies might test the Aussies, we've hardly had a good warmup with two easy tests against a woeful Kiwi batting lineup. Should be a good series.

    They won't dump Symonds, I agree that they should, but they won't

    I dont expect any major changes and i agree i think it will be a good series of tight tests.

    Having said that one team will probably play poorly and get their asses kicked

    If the Saffies were the real deal mentally they would beat us comfortably. They well could as our mob are ripe for the picking and our bowling attack is suspect without Warne and McGrath.

    2-0 Australia.

    Symonds should go. Lucky to be playing grade the way he is going.

    It's Watson or Krezja obviously for the last bowling spot.

    I think the man under most pressure is Hayden.... Klinger, Rogers and Hughes are making a lot of runs at the moment.

    Jaques will be next choice opener once he has proven his fitness

    Ponting stated not long ago that Hayden will not be dropped so I don't see him going anywhere, other than maybe a quiet tap on the shoulder suggesting retirement

    I am looking forward to watching Steyn, I rate him very, very highly. Also a fan of AB De Villiers as well

    You'd think the Boers would have learned to not talk themselves up by now.

    Safraz Clark is out now, so do they go for Siddle or is Watson a chance ??

    I've also noticed that Ponting is very conspicuous by his absence in the lead up to this test, all the quotes in the media are from Michael Clarke

    Siddle in for Clark, Krejza gets the nod and Watson will carry the drinks.

    I think we will struggle to take wickets against these guys. All our bowlers (without Clark) are hot and cold. Without big scores we are in trouble - and so far it has been tough going.
