Ricky Ponting (capt)
Brad Haddin (wk)
Only one change, Stuart Clark is out, Bollinger is in. Which is a bit of a shame for Clark, who has been putting respectable performances but let’s be honest, after what Bollinger turned in on the 6th ODI they were obligated to give him his second Test Cap. Alas, Brett Lee is still out for the count with that elbow spur, but still having two proper quicks in the attack will be a treat.
Hopefully Haddin can get his head around batting again, because his last few performances that I can see have been uniformly uninspiring. The rest of the batting line-up should hold up though, with Ponting and Hussey back in form.
Dunno yet who is 12th man but if I were to make stupid bets, I’d opt for Hilfenhaus or Siddle.
