I don't understand the decision to bowl. All the stats give the advantage to the team batting first in tests. Sure, there are some circumstances that dictate bucking the conventional wisdom, but none of those circumstances apply today; in fact, The Oval is generally a ground that rewards batting first. Not only that, I'd think that the Aussie quicks might have benefited from an extra day or two of rest before being asked to bowl again.
