Help Bollinger and Harris added to Test squad
Advertisement
#1

Ricky Ponting says none of Australia's bowlers from Brisbane are safe after Doug Bollinger and Ryan Harris were added to a 13-man squad for Friday's second Test in Adelaide. The home side's attack was pummelled by England in the second innings at the Gabba as the tourists reached a mammoth 1 for 517 in the draw.

Mitchell Johnson was the most disappointing as he went wicketless for the first time in his Test career, while Ben Hilfenhaus and Xavier Doherty also struggled for impact. Peter Siddle failed to follow up his six-wicket opening on Thursday when the pitch flattened out.

Johnson has never been dropped from the Test team and while Ponting said the bowler remained in a good state of mind, he is under huge pressure to hold his place. "I don't think anyone is a certainty," Ponting said.

Harris and Bollinger were both picked in the original squad for the first Test before being released due to fitness doubts. Harris was cut because he had only just returned from a knee injury and Bollinger's lack of bowling since picking up a stomach strain in India led the selectors to settle on Siddle.

Australia squad Simon Katich, Shane Watson, Ricky Ponting (capt), Michael Clarke, Michael Hussey, Marcus North, Brad Haddin (wk), Mitchell Johnson, Xavier Doherty, Ryan Harris, Peter Siddle, Ben Hilfenhaus, Doug Bollinger.
