SYDNEY, (Reuters) – Mitchell Johnson is hoping his  perspiration in the nets will provide inspiration to  Australia’s selectors and earn him a recall for the third Ashes test against England in Perth this week.

Just two years after he was hailed as the world’s best   fast bowler, the 29-year-old spent two weeks pounding away in Adelaide and Perth aiming to prove that he can still bowl with  the consistency and technique that earned him the plaudit.

“We’ve got him feeling the way he wants to feel,” Australia  bowling coach Troy Cooley told  yesterday’s The Australian.
“He’s working his backside off. All he wants to do is play well for  his country.”
The third Ashes test begins in Perth on tomorrow.
