    Clarke has improved in T20's tbf. His stats in the 6 games he's played in 2010 aren't that bad. 131 runs at 32.75 with a top score of 67 and a strike rate of 120.18. Still not brilliant, but not completely awful. Averages 45 with a strike rate of 111 as skipper too. I don't think he's as bad a T20 player as people make out, and with Warner, Watson, the Hussey's, White and Haddin around him he can get away with striking at 120. He's hardly Chris Tavare.

    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.
    Being consistant is the best method of success in cricket. 6 Warners in the team and your score will be between 50 & 300, 6 Clarkes and your scores will be between 100 & 150. You need both Clarkes and Warners

    If by consistent you mean consistently low scores, than yes Clarke is consistent. Bloke's had a high score of 37 for the majority of his career.

    You've fallen into the Warner trap, have a look at his record for an indication of true consistency.

    Yeah, Warner is a gun. His 91 (iirc) in the IPL was awesome.

    Their respective median score should be used as the measure of consistency, not high score.

    Michael Clarke has 347 T20i runs at the massive strike rate of 108.43 in 25 matches

    David Warner has 478 T20i runs at the meagre strike rate of 154.69 in 14 matches.

    I know which id prefer in my team.

    Nah ****, read properly, ****.

    He's saying you need both types of players, which tbf is somewhat true.

    If he said 6 Clarkes in your team > 6 Warners you'd have a point, ****.

    He's saying that a mixture of Clarke and Warners > 6 Warners.

    Perhaps if you dont remember a game you shouldent comment on it.

    Dhoni played woefully and cricinfo did comment on it. "12.1
    Bravo to Dhoni, OUT, And Dhoni falls after a painful little knock.".

    The West Indies won by 8 balls

    Yuvraj 67 SR155
    Dhoni 11 SR 47
    Pathan 31 SR 134

    Simmons 44 SR 118
    Bravo 66 SR 183
    Chanderpaul 18 SR 200

    I dont suppose you can see where the WI's gained the upper hand.

    But my point, ****, was that why would you want someone like Clarke in the mixture. You have Muss and Duss, both of which could stabilise the ship, but can also come in and do what they want.

    6 Warners > 3 Clarkes and 3 Warners 9 times out of 10. Have tested it, ****.
