    Little bit worried about what is going to happen when Australia start bowling well tbh. Far too many balls in the first hour able to be let go. Clark will go fair gun on this

    Yeah, Lee not getting any seam at all. Definitely more of Clark's sort of pitch. I think he'd be rightly a bit agrieved not to get first go with the new cherry after the first three tests. Oz best bowler by a fair bit thus far.

    Cook was out, it came off the toe of the bat. Clark's not only been Oz's best bowler, been best in the series.

    Bed time for me i think. Save myself for tomorrow night as we try to bowl with less than 200 on the board.

    Rain might save a 5-0 whitewash.

    I'd rather we lose 5-0 in Warne & McGrath's last series than be saved from it by the rain

    Wouldn't argue about Clark at all. Where's he been til now?

    & if Cook did touch it it really was a feather. As I said before Gilly didn't look totally convinced & he's normally a very whole-hearted appealer.

    Anyway i sent an email to sky before after Bumble commented on the weather being Manchester like, telling them it hasn't rained all day in Manchester and we would have started on time if it was Old Trafford.

    Have they really picked the best side then?

    Saj is playing as a specialist bat isn't he?

    I've liked the look of Cook, I think he might end up being a top class opener for Eng. I think Gilly was a tad confused in his appeal, thinking 'how did he nick that when he was leaving it'

    Good question, where has Clark been till now? I don't think Ponting has been a big fan of Clarks. I thought he was definatly under-bowled in the first couple of Tests. The Aus selectors the last couple of years have been a bit slow in making team changes, IMO. Think they've placed too much importance on team stability at the expense of dropping out-of-form players. In 2005 Hussey showed enough in the ODI's before the tests to gain a spot over Katich for example, but was left out. Gillespie was clearly having a shocking run. (of course easy in hindsight, but watching 2005 on tv i was thinking it then)
    Even this series. I'm a fan of Haydon, he's proven himself over a long time, but on form, Jacqes (forgive my spelling please) did enough pre-series for me.
    We've seen it coming for a few years, now we have to be very careful not to repeat the problems we had when Lillie, Marsh and Chappel retired. But will we....

    Not if Gilchrist has something to say about it... You start watching tommorow, you might just end up seeing yourself bat again with 500 to chase.

    Clark's domestic record hardly screams out and says pick me. Most of Australia were surprised that he proved he was even vaguely useful at test level.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!
