Former Australia skipper Allan Border said that struggling seamer Mitchell Johnson needs to rebuild his game and should step away from Tests for at least a week.
Border said the left-armer should be replaced by Stuart Clark for the third Test of the ongoing Ashes series, beginning Thursday at Edgbaston.
"It's not going to hurt Mitchell (Johnson) to stand down for a week, go out the back in the nets, and thunder in for the equivalent of up to 15 overs a day until he gets it right," Border was quoted as saying in the 'Herald Sun'.
"Then he'll have nothing else to worry about apart from his bowling. He won't have to worry about going at six an over, like he did in the last Test.
"There won't be any of the pressure and scrutiny that comes with being in the middle of a Test match."
Border said he was worried about Johnson who looks like to have totally lost his radar.
"You want him in your side if he's bowling well because he's a genuine wicket-taker, but Australia simply can't let England get away like they did at Lord's," he said.
"To be almost 200 in three hours before losing their first wicket, it's really tough to come back from there."
