Given its played at Perth the fast bowlers should be at an advantage over the spinners but spinners have at times picked up a handful of useful wickets there with the extra bounce as well. Ive been pondering the value of North and Doherty and think its worth swapping with Smith and Hauritz. Adding to the complexity are the injuries. Katich is out for the series and Harris has a chest strain of some sort and is very doubtful at this stage. My squad Jacques - has the experience Watson Ponting Clarke Hussey Haddin - steps up one to take the pressure off Smith Smith - Not there to tie down an end, there to get wickets & can bat Hauritz - There to tie down an end and got 5 for at Perth last month & can bat Johnson - 5 for at perth last month and no better pitch to get confidence back Piddle - Different bowler to the lefties and a seamer Bollinger - Should be better with a run under his belt Gives us more spin options, shortens the tail a little and Smith/Hauritz should be good for as many runs as North/Doherty. Harris would play if fit.
