Mark Waugh says teams have worked out “one-dimensional” Johnson

Sydney, Nov 30(ANI): Former Australian batsman Mark Waugh is among the pundits concerned by fast bowler Mitchell Johnson’s performance after he went wicketless, for the first time in his 39 Tests, in the Ashes opener in Brisbane.

Johnson now has the dubious honour of having not taken a wicket in over 400 Test deliveries and collecting Test figures at the Gabba of 0-170 off 42 overs with an economy rate of 4.05.

“As far as the fast bowling is concerned, obviously you’ve got to look at Bollinger, and Harris if he’s fit - they’re both very good bowlers,” Fox Sports quoted Waugh, as saying.

“The problem with Mitchell Johnson is he’s too one-dimensional, and I think the opposition have worked him out,” he added.

However, Waugh was unsure when asked whether Australia’s selectors would change the team for Adelaide, despite the disappointing outcome of the first Test in Brisbane.

“I don’t think they’ll make many changes, given that it was a draw - we didn’t lose the game. There’s a bit of a question mark on him, but I think the selectors will probably leave it the same given it was a draw in the first Test,” Waugh said.

“He’s got to do something special or otherwise he’s in grave danger of losing his spot for the third Test,” he added. (ANI)
