Good luck Binga

Watching the last Test match against South Africa made me think... Brett Lee and Stuart Clark will have their work cut out for them getting back into this team.

Brett Lee has different ideas.

"I'm not embarrassed to say that I expect to lead the pace attack and take that brand new ball again for Australia," Lee told Cricinfo.

Sounds a bit too big for his boots. Like someone else we just managed to get rid of. It would be different if Australia had lost the first two Tests. But we didn't. Should a winning formula be changed? I don't think so. Does Mitchell Johnson secretly want to punch him? Perhaps.

Also, er, I bet Matt Hayden's feeling a bit small. Because if he had gone when he was supposed to (as decreed by me), well, let's just say there might not have been so much losing going on during the summer, eh?

I agree, though if Lee is back to his best, then he should easily take Hilfenhaus's place. It might be tougher if Clark is also in the running, the attack has nice variety in the three completely different bowling styles of Siddle, Johnson and Clark. Lee and Siddle would probably fight it out for a spot.

Now that Johnson has learnt that you can actually swing a cricket ball, this attack doesn't look half bad. If they drop McDonald and North, they can play the extra bowler, given that Johnson and Lee are almost guaranteed to do a good job down the order. But I don't know if Ponting will be that brave with this current crop.

From an English point of view, we're much more fearful of Clark than Lee. Lee's never done that much with the ball when playing in England, but his gusy batting was an asset in 2005.

So I hope the selectors read this previous comment and Lee plays while Clark sits on the sideline!

Will be glad to see Lee back at his best. There's nothing quite like watching the likes of him and Shoaib Akhter (when he was at his best and drug-free) charging in to bowl.
