That will be one of the many questions up for debate on Sunday's Cricket Writers on TV as Sky Sports commentator Paul Allott is joined by John Etheridge (The Sun), Paul Newman (Daily Mail) and Australian journalist Malcolm Conn (News Limited).

AUSTRALIA - Shane Watson and Chris Rogers will brave the new ball after being selected as the tourists' openers by new coach Darren Lehmann but which other Antipodeans will get the nod at Trent Bridge? Conn should give us the inside line
CLASH OF THE CAPTAINS - Alastair Cook and Michael Clarke have been clocking up runs for fun since they assumed the responsibility of skipper, but which man will win the battle of wits this summer and lead their troop to Ashes glory? Paul and the gang will air their thoughts
