    Clarke's back is still a worry, according to The Australian he might not play in Brisbane.

    Goes without saying that Paine will be out a while if his finger is as bad as it looked last night. Nasty blow there. Haddin better stay fit then.

    Didn't see it, was the injury that bad i.e. enough to keep him out of a game? Hard enough being a 'keeper and obviously only one spot in a team available, always looked at them like this guy;

    Looked like the proximal knuckle of his index finger, looked pretty ugly mate, tbh.

    Haha, as I said in my post, it's basically just regurgitating stuff we already knew. The one statement of new fact is basically a Clarke tweet about him going to the physio, oh no.

    More interesting is whether he trains today.

    His back must be really screwed up if it can keep him out for over 2 weeks.

    Sounds much the same as Atherton and Thorpe used to get.Can flare up at any time and sometimes they play through the pain and their form suffers because of it but they never actually say at the time how bad it is.I would expect with him having this problem so bad now that he will be long retired before he reaches the age Ponting is now.

    Clarkes back he's always had but it's flared up again. Khawaja is flying in as an emergency just in case he is needed.

    i wouldn't say it's that bad. he's not missed any tests yet and it's not affected his form at all.

    Well as i say we don't know.He hasn't scored many runs in tests of late so is that related to his back?

    The truth generally doesn't come out till they retire and write their autobiography.

    Well he was clearly struggling second innings of the Shield match, but it didn't affect his strokeplay. 6 boundaries in an innings of 40ish, full range of shots.

    And no I wouldn't put his poor run in India due to his back. Very easy to rule that out based purely on the dismissals themselves.
