Mitchell Johnson has been the deciding difference between England and Australia in this Ashes series.

In this series, Johnson has been that one bowler who has troubled the English batsmen more than any other bowler.

He has proved to be a hard nut to crack for the Englishmen with his slinging action and lightening pace, he has taken 23 wickets in this series so far with two five-wickets hauls to his name.

Australia have already regained the Ashes and Mitchell Johnson has played his part flawlessly in all the three victorious matches.

Although, in the first innings of the third Test he managed to pick up just one wicket but he took four in second innings.

In the third Test the English batsmen came prepared for Johnson and they had their mind all set for the 150km thunderbolt deliveries.

Now, Johnson also needs to do a bit of  homework as the series is not over yet. All he needs do is to be a little more erratic about the pace of his deliveries.

He should vary his speed, which will make the life of English batsmen more difficult on the field.

Varying his pace would make it more difficult to read his deliveries and make sure those wickets keep coming in, helping Australia to a famous 5-0 series win.
