The Ashes: The fast bowlers

Brett Lee and James Anderson in action

This was where the 2005 series was won and lost - when England's pace quartet harnessed reverse swing with the old ball so effectively.

The man credited with transforming England's pace quartet, Troy Cooley, is now working with Australia's fast bowlers.

The tourists have pace in abundance with Brett Lee, Mitchell Johnson, Peter Siddle and Ben Hilfenhaus, along with the metronomic Stuart Clark.

Equally, England have plenty of reversers with James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Steve Harmison, Graham Onions and Tim Bresnan to call upon.

But who will make the old ball duck and swerve?
