    Yep definitely.

    England should ensure they don't make these 33 runs. Aus enforce the follow on, Harris and Siddle break down giving their all for the cause so Clarkie decides to do it himself.......takes 6/9 and with only 1 wicket left to take his back snaps clean in half......

    England draw the test, retain the Ashes and Aus have lost 3 bowlers for the series and their only batsmen.

    Clarke can bowl fine, he's been bowling a bit in the nets, 5 overs at most you'd think though.
    Proudly supporting the world's no 1 spin bowler Rangana Herath and the mighty Sri Lankans!

    I even made a domestic thread

    Nah.

    Warner and especially Smith don't lose much in comparison and both turn the ball away from the right hander, so why risk it? Not like he's Bishan Bedi, is it?

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    I'd side with no at the moment. If it gets really in Australia's favour, then maybe

    He is a golden bollocks with the ball. Most likely to take 3 wickets in an over.

    Bring him on with about 5 overs to go and 3-4 wickets to take

    It'll be more like a first swim judging by the weather map for Manchester I just saw.

    Clarke gets through his overs very quickly doesn't he? Might not be a bad option in situations like this for that reason.
