Make a team of the best and most effective players in the 3 Tests of the Ashes thus far. Here's mine: 1. Strauss 2. Katich 3. Ponting 4. Clarke 5. North 6. Haddin (wk) 7. Flintoff 8. Anderson 9. Hauritz - Has not been super awesome, but has definitely outbowled 10. Hilfenhaus 11. Onions I almost picked Mitch Johnson because no one else has obviously been better: Broad has barely any scalps, Onions had one awesome spell but hasn't threatened a lot otherwise, Siddle has been patchy . Mitch would also lengthen the batting. It would add balance to the attack with a left arm option and since the other 3 pace bowlers picked are generally pretty tight I would feel comfortable letting Mitch loose. But in the end I picked Onions, thought it might look too biased otherwise Collingwood is close but loses out for team balance. Otherwise, it's an Aussie dominated lineup. It's a shame really that England are up 1-0 given the numbers of Aussies who've played well.
