    Sticking by this. Marcus North, GTFO.

    Twas that VB ad.

    Anyway, does it matter how much runs Bollinger scores? If we need him to do something with the bat you know we're in trouble.

    Haha that set of VB ads is hilarious IMO. Well, not Clarke's so much, but Watson's reaction is absolutely classic.

    I don't think it's anywhere that simple myself.
    There is absolutely no chance of Clarke being dropped so .....

    Nay, Huss is much better at no. 5, 64.95 vs 46.02. But I agree with you, I don't think that batting at 4 or 5 shouldn't really make a difference. I like Hussey at 5 though because he is better at working with the tail, and is in the perfect spot to rebuild an innings. I also like, in theory, Clarke at 4 because he is right next to Ponting and when they get good partnerships going (which unfortunately seems a rarity these days), they can win matches by themselves.

    I wouldn't be so sure if he keeps looking so horrifyingly bad. Although I think, as usual with Clarke, if he borrows a bit of Hussey's luck and one of the edges is dropped/doesn't carry, he could be back in business.

    How much of his record at 4 is brought down by his horror run in 08-09?

    And Clarke on form gets partnerships going with basically everyone. Clarke/North has actually been our most productive non-opening pair in the last two years...

    None of his recent bad form can be attributed to batting at no.4 imo. Injuries, one bad series, and good bowling account for it.

    Hence the "I'm not sure things are so simple".

    Really crucial day for Aus tomorrow. If the replacements can't do it and England are on something like 300/3 at the end, then I think the game will be England's and also the series.

    Have a little bit of faith in our bowling but it's going to be tough. Can see a guy like Paul Collingwood making merry again like 06/07. Let's see if we can come back from poor first day batting like England did last week. If we can't, it's obvious they're the better side and deserve the Ashes.
    Rest In Peace Craigos
