Hussey wary of magic Monty

The Australian cricket squad will train in Adelaide today ahead of the second Ashes Test match against England from Friday.

Australia won the opening Test in Brisbane by 277 runs.

Despite the comfortable victory, Australian batsman Michael Hussey says his side should not become complacent.

"The same thing happened in England last year when the guys won the first Test and then England came back to win," he said.

"We are very mindful of keeping our minds on the job and playing well in Adelaide."

Hussey has also warned his Australian team-mates to be wary of Monty Panesar's doosra, should he form a two-pronged spinning attack for England.

England coach Duncan Fletcher said on Tuesday he was considering playing both Panesar and fellow left-arm spinner Ashley Giles at the Adelaide Oval, with one of the quicks to drop out of the side.

Hussey spent a lot of time in the nets with a young Panesar when he played three seasons of county cricket for Northamptonshire from 2001, captaining the county in 2002 and 2003.

England played conservatively by preferring the more experienced Giles for the first Gabba Test and he finished with one wicket for 113 runs.

Panesar, the first Sikh to play Test cricket for England, is considered a more attacking bowler than Giles and Hussey has been impressed with him.

"Monty gets more overspin on the ball so he's more of an up and over bowler," Hussey said.

"When I was playing with him at Northamptonshire he was trying to produce a doosra which can be a difficult ball to play if you get it right.

"Giles is more about keeping it tight and bowling into the rough and building pressure that way."
