Wade at 6 and Johnson at 7 for Australia

Should there be 4 seamers in Australia's best team?   Interesting to see that Australia will go with Matthew Wade at 6 and Mitchell Johnson at 7 versus Sri Lanka tomorrow.   With a tour to India coming up, it's an interesting tactic and one that suggests more than half a thought towards the summer's Ashes.   This piece was interesting on the Australian site The Roar, suggesting that Maxwell should be considered ahead of Lyon long-term, so I'm surprised that Australia haven't used the dead 3rd Sri Lanka Test to try out either Kawaja or Maxwell in their top 7.
As I noted two days ago, from an Australian point of view I fear for them trying to find the right team in time for The Ashes without Mike Hussey, especially if Michael Clarke struggles with fitness.
