The quality of the Australian team isn't so much who's in it, but who's out.
When you've got players like Bichel on the fringe that sums up the strength of the squad.
He's first in line for a Test berth should anything happen to any of the quicks or should anyone be off the boil.
Bichel's tough and uncompromising, loves a challenge and is a reliable bloke.
He's the sort that is key to a team effort and will not be daunted out in the middle in the heat of Ashes battle.
