    I mean really 9 times out of 10?

    Clarke would have helped the team out though and just gotten out before the 20 overs had been completed.

    Yeah that Hopes innings was one of the worst T20 innings I've seen.

    I couldn't think of anything more bland than following the tweets of Clarke or Bingle.

    I hope Clarke comes good in T20. I have voiced my opinion before on Clarke's lack of ability in the format and the multiple better options, but I accept he isn't getting dropped so simply want to see some improvement from him. Leading us to the Cup would make a nice start.

    Professional sportspeople, especially the likes of Clake's, twitters are so sterilised these days it's no fun. Except Swanneh. He's hilarious, even more so when he was making pie jokes all the time as Bresnan's expense.

    That's such a vague statement I'm sure you'll come here and claim you were right if Clarke goes out early and Hussey or White clobbers India

    Yeah, this.

    He wasn't a bad ODI player at all in his first incarnation. Then as he's sorted out and tightened his technique for tests, he's become limited overs' mud.

    Hoping he can find the balance and get good at the shorter stuff asap.

    Well, I hope that he scores a decent amount of runs at pace tonight. I mean, he is capable, technically, of doing it, but I don't think he wants to. He's still half in test mode IMO.

    Definitely. Occasionally he does show that he, as I said, is capable of playing a good quick LO innings (the even-hundred against Pakistan last year in the ODI was really good to watch), but...

    I hope he makes a nice 12 off 8 balls or so and doesn't bowl, would be nice to see him get a run out from a direct hit too.

    Definitely hope he doesn't bowl based on his bowling form... well, since Sydney '08. Then again, it is India...

    Must admit, I appreciate Clarke a lot more after he refused to give himself a bat last night.
