    And Hughes scored buckets as well. Notts will be a good place for Cowan to acclimatise though. Swings a lot there and can be really tough early season.

    You've probably been sleeping under a rock for the last 2 years, but there's a bloke thats smashed about 4 ground record scores in Australia, and most of Bradman's other existing ones to go along with it.

    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...

    He does. But by the time the Ashes roll around, it will be 2 years since his last century, India in England, 2011. There's been plenty of cricket since then.

    Bad place to get into any sort of form though. A typical Notts collapse goes a bit further than Australia's version. Usually they're 5 down before any sort of recovery kicks in.

    Well aware of how fine a player Clarke is. He is Australia's best, no doubt about it. In serious form as well. I also think he's a fantastic captain as well. Seriously aggressive in his decision making, always looking for a result. He plays the game in the right way in my opinion. It'll be nice to see two new captains going at it in the Ashes next time. Both fine, fine players.

    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.
