    Yeah I've heard all these excuses before, last time it was the umpires.

    Hahahahahha you are such a **** poster. You've come back even ****ter than prior to your absence.

    To claim that Dhoni knock at the MCG cos them the game is a disgrace. India were just awful in that match, and they were in a dire situation when Dhoni walked out.

    And nobody said anything about the umpires so stop talking rubbish.

    Fact: Dhoni's international T20 record isn't great. No denying that.

    Fact: Dhoni is 50 times the T20 batsman than Michael Clarke.

    I hope you enjoy Michael Clarke's next innings though Streetwise.

    I havent been watching the T20I's, and will miss the rest due to travelling. I'm dreadully sorry old boys for mentiong a little known trivial fact that Clarke and Dhoni have similar records.

    Streetwise = Michael Clarke. Is the only rational explanation.

    Jono, as poor as Streetwise's posting is, and tbf, it is poor... to say that 'Fact: Dhoni is 50 times the T20 batsman than Michael Clarke' is pretty much on par for poorness.

    Clarke, imo, still has a role to play in t20. There's still a place for classical stroke play, so to speak, in t20, not just the slap and hope players.

    At the moment, I don't think coming in at number three when the team has got off to a flying start is his best position, but who would you rather have in the Australian line up (from and Australian point of view) to be batting when they're 4/20 on a poor West Indian pitch trying to get the team to 120? I know I'd feel safer with Clarke there than almost anyone else.

    He should be playing a floating role and play it by ear I think.

    Could this post be the final straw on the camels back? Can only see Clarke being dropped after Murphy's sign of approval.

    Michael Hussey would probably be my choice, TBH.
