    Today Clarke faced twice as many balls as Warner scoring less than 2/3 of the number of runs.

    As if we need manipulations of statistics to know Clarke ain't much of a T20 player! In his favour, he knows when to take a back step and let the good batters go for it.

    The skipper has been batting at No.3 or No.4 in four matches but in a Super Eights clash with India in Barbados on May 7, Clarke controversially dropped himself down the order and didn't bat at all as Australia made 5-184 then bowled India out for 135.

    There was nothing controversial about it.

    tbh, you'd be hard pressed to quantify captaincy. Even though it is easy to point out good and bad captaincy.

    What a fantastic captain Clarke has turned out to be. Dhoni had a much better team but his captaincy cost them.

    Disagree they have a much better team.

    We have better openers and fast bowlers. They have better middle order and spinners. When Sehwag comes back it'd tip it massively in their favour though.

    He's been a good captain, but it's always tough to rate captaincy.
