Australia's line up will not be revealed until the last possible minute and despite a comprehensive victory in the first Test, Aussie Coach and the selection Panel, still have several tough decision to make. 

Despite only amassing 15 runs in the series opener, and missing out on a big score in the subsequent tour match against Worcestershire, Langer is still in Camerion Bancroft's corner. 

"I'll catch up with him today, he is probably just trying a bit hard at the moment," Langer said of Bancroft.

Langer also admitted his bowling line-up is still undecided.

"Whoever misses out, it's going to be tough... they are very, very good bowlers" Langer said of his available quick bowlers. 

The wicket will obviously play its part with Langer describing it as 'interesting'.

"It looks like it's going to be a really flat wicket - it's quite dry."

That may not be the case for much longer with the forecast for Lords looking threatening, at best. 

For those who cant' wait for the second Test - here's something to scratch the itch!

A great look at the history of The Ashes with interviews from some of the Cricketing greats that have been in the heat of battle, from both sides of the battle!.
