8 centuries in his last 5 series, 3 doubles and a triple.
Clarke's a new player in England this time, he treats absolutely anything short with contempt these days, so it will be interesting to see how Finn and co bowl to him...
If Bell top scores, England win.
If Bell top scores, cricket loses.
if bell top scores england are rolled sub 100
I'd take Pietersen because the guy is a matchwinner, plain and simple. If he fires, you're looking at big scores in a seriously quick space of time. You refer to Clarke treating the short stuff with contempt, Pietersen treats any bowling with absolute disdain when he's on it, including the very, very best.
Clarke is a serious match winner too... Aggressive and seemingly less likely to throw away a start with a rash shot on top of that
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
Pietersen is more of a match loser than a match winner. Plays stupid shots and finds ways to get out often when he's on 30.
So dumb to say that you'd take someone because on their day they can smack the ball.... then in the same breath say Warner is no good despite the fact he can score faster centuries than KP.
Clarke > Pietersen.

I don't think it's possible to be more contemptuous of a bowling attack than Clarke was at stages of Adelaide. It's just that Clarke sticks to orthodox cricket shots, whilst KP looks like he's making **** up at times.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
pretty sure you used the word often in that good post of yours
