But yeah I agree, I just don't buy the "there's room for conventional batsman and slap and hope players" because that's like saying anyone who scores at a higher strike rate than Clarke must be slap and hope. Raina isn't slap and hope, neither is Morgan, Dhoni, Watson etc. They play cricket strokes, just they're much better than Clarke.
No one is saying you need a team full of Yusuf Pathans. But Clarke wouldn't make the 3rd best T20 world XI in my honest opinion. He hasn't proved anything at domestic or international level. At least Dhoni has proven it at domestic.
