Ponting and Clarke to improve their batting and north to be replaced with David Hussey to strength batting .

Still 77 days to go for ICC cup,If this situation continuous then world cup will be worst case for aus

Actually Marcus North is not worth his place - 20 tests average 36, only 9 out of 33 innings he got over 50. Bye bye Marcus - Durham needs you.

Australia since the 1989 ashes triumph believed the only way to win successfully was to have bowlers that can take 3 wickets or more, batsmen that can turn 50s into centuries and of late that is not happening in the top order as Watson should be moved into the middle as there has to be plenty of budding openers in Australia that can make regular centuries and not mere modest half centuries.

I think that Marcus North needs to be dropped and Hilfenhaus needs to be there in the team. Since the Aus bowling is struggling, why not get a 4 pace (Harris, Bollinger, Hilfenhaus, siddle) and one spinner (Doharty / Hauritz) attack to get 20 english wickets !!!

@katie welsh North is better than a grade cricketer he hit century on debut and has 5 test hundreds in his first 2 years as a test cricketer its not actually 2 years until march to be fair
