Australian pace superstar Mitchell Johnson is set to return from his long (near about a month) rest period and the Tri-series finale against England will be his 1st aggressive game since the Boxing Day Test against India. After the drawn Melbourne Test against India, Mitchell Johnson was rested to recuperate from hamstring injury.

Johnson did a fair job from the start of the 2013-14 Ashes until the end of the 2014 calendar year and he had bowled 602 overs in all international cricket, the most by any fast bowlers during that period. Mitchell Johnson told reporters that he needs bit of a rest.

He thinks it would probably been a big 1 year personally, but for all the bowlers as well. The United Arab United was quite difficult. They bowled a lot of overs there and then coming into Australian soil were a little bit flatter than they awaited. There were a lot of runs scored through the Test series. The body now is fully recuperated and ready to go for the next.

Johnson was quoted saying: “I’m feeling pretty good. I’m feeling rested. I don’t have any soreness there anymore, so I’m feeling pretty good. It’ll be nice to play on a nice fast, bouncy wicket again. I’m looking forward to getting out there. I know the South African series we played there, the wicket just got quicker and quicker. I’m really looking forward to playing on a nice wicket.”

Johnson applauded Mitchell Starc, who leads the wicket tally in the ongoing Tri-series with twelve scalps. Johnson really looking forward to getting out on the field and bowling and working with Starc. He thinks that they bowl well together in the short form and hopefully they can bowl well together at the WACA. There is actually 3 left-arm bowlers but two opening bowlers.
