Last night Greg Chappell said that Mitchell Johnson had been rested.
Mitchell Johnson said that Mitchell Johnson had been dropped.
Andrew Hilditch said Michael Beer would play and his knowledge of the WACA would be important.
Michael Beer didn’t play and Ponting has now said his knowledge of the conditions of Melbourne will help.
There are even rumours that the four man pace attack was not a plan but more an accident. Like Michael Beer’s selection.
Australia won this test.
I mean really won.
Smashed by an innings and coming back to win by over 200 runs.
How is it possible that this team with this band of merry muppets who don’t even seem to know what is going on around them can win a test so easily.
Especially when they not only beat England, but also the momentum of the Adelaide win.
I like to think that Australia beat England and Greg Chappell beat the momentum. It is his windmill and he rode that donkey straight for it.
Unfortunately the donkey still might not play next game, it was always going to be rested.
