I believe we need more bowling options than we have needed in the past. Playing 3 recognised bowlers plus Watson is a recipe for disaster, but playing 3 bowlers plus Watson and Symonds can work. I would leave out Brett Lee assuming that Stuart Clark is fit again, and ask him to go and sort himself out before he comes back. I'd play both Johnson and Siddle, and leave out Krajza who is likely to be the subject of cricket trivia questions for some time. Mind you selectors won't do that - but I would!
id go with both and not play krezja. i think krezja will get carted back over here, look at his first class stats for an idea of how he will perform in aus.
bat watson at 6, symonds at 7 and haddin at 8.
in regards to the bowlers. id play lee, clark and siddle/bollinger. i still dont rate johnson even though he performed okay in india. he's never going to be a great quick until he learns to actually swing (or even seam) the ball. if we want a left armer in the team, go with bollinger, he deserves a shot imo.
