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
