Sydney: Australian Test bowler Mitchell Johnson has said that he never doubted his ability to bounce back from injury and an on-field career lowpoint to spearhead Australia`s Ashes revival, according to reports.

According to, the 32-year-old was a spectator for Australia`s failed Ashes bid this winter, but already this series has a stunning 16 wickets at 8.94.

While many had written him off as a Test bowler, Johnson said he knew he could still perform at the top level.

Saturday`s defining performance sparked fresh calls from fans for Johnson to keep the moustache he grew for Movember, but he said the fuzz would only last as long as this Test summer, the report mentioned.
