Apparently Khawaja has been flown up as backup.
This time I have a proper leak, from a real spy!
One of the financial planners at our firm went to a lunch today with Crash Craddock who said that Clarke will not play.

They called up Khawaja? Why is Smith in the squad then?
Will be a big blow for the Aussies to lose Clarke, I think he's their best batsman. Strange parallels from last time where Clarke was the one called up as injury cover.

If he didn't have such a dismal time in Hobart, nobody would be upset by the selection of Khawaja. On numbers alone he deserves to be the backup, and it's finally the injection of quality youth that the side needs.
Well if Clarke is out then it makes me even happier and the batting even more brittle.4,5 and 6 being a couple of players under intense pressure and a debutant is a recipe for disaster.
Odds on, if Clarke is ruled out, that Khawaja will push Hussey out ala Damien Martyn?

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
If they were going to drop Hussey then they would have left him out of the squad.
