“Joe Root three, Ballance six, Bresnan at eight or nine”

Australia captain Michael Clarke has attempted to name the squad England will pick for the second Test in Adelaide once again.

 Despite doing the same thing prior to the start of the first Test in Brisbane, Clarke was a little more hesitant to go through with the process this time round.

“I’m not going there again…” Clarke said initially.

However, after a little stutter, he said: “I don’t think they will play Monty Panesar, but I wouldn’t be surprised (if they did) on that wicket. I think spin is going to play a big part; we’ve got a lot of right-handers in our order.

“But I think they’ll go [with] ‘safety’. I think they’ll go Bresnan, and Ballance… so yes, I do have a team for you. Joe Root three, Ballance six, Bresnan at eight or nine or something like that.”
