1. Shane Watson

3. Chris Rogers
4. Michael Clarke
5. Dave Hussey/Callum Ferguson
6. Steve Smith
7. Brad Haddin

Since Warner isn't playing in the first test then Roger will slot in as opener and Hughes would be at #3.
except neither hussey or ferguson are in the ashes squad so who do you bat at #5? that's saying if smith is at #6. choices are khawaja or wade as a pure batsman. wade has a higher test average, 2 tons to his name and that's playing as keeper as well. but khawaja has a better FC record (though again wade is a keeper batsman so he could potentially have a better FC record had he played as a pure batsman).
All Time Test XI: 1 Hobbs 2 B.Richards 3 Bradman 4 Pollock 5 V.Richards 6 Sobers 7 Gilchrist 8 Miller 9 Procter 10 Marshall 11 Warne
