Ashes series - new-look bowling pair for Oz

Chance to get his head straight
The Australian team management dropped Mitchell Johnson, who thought that this was a time to get his head straight. He struggled to make an impression in the first test and this decision will do him good. Ponting remarked that Hilfenhaus might be replaced by Bollinger, making it a new and fresh pair for the second test starting on Friday. The Australians will be expecting these changes to help them get twenty English wickets in Adelaide.

The English team must be feeling very confident after the first test batting performance - their captain making all the right sound-bites saying that they have not achieved much so far. Complacency is the one factor that might pull them down but the 2 Andrews - Strauss and Flower - will keep them motivated enough.

The pitch will be flat while rains might cause interruptions in the match. Ability to take wickets will be the key factor at play while Ricky Ponting will strive to put runs on the board. The Oz batting order will be under pressure to regain their form and score heavily. Will the English bowlers come to party once again or will it be the reincarnation of KP?
