Yeah we have always had bad luck with injuries in Australia. Remember last time Simon Jones having that horrific fall on the 1st morning which left us playing a whole match with 10 men and a bowler short, and put him out of the game for the best part of 2 years. He is gonna be a big loss this time round. If I remember correctly, we ended up finishing a couple of the other tests with 9 or 10 either. Had such terrible luck last time in Australia.
It's key that we bowl well. Harmison and Hoggard have to be on top form the whole way through and it will be interesting to see how Panesar goes. He is gonna get slaughtered by the Aussie fans on the boundary
so we'll see what he's made of mentally.
