Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
well Darren Lehmann made a big show and dance about how the rotation policy is dead, so Watson played, but he was never ever bowling in this match, so Voges and Clarke took over
not ****ing good enough spikey hussein
The but about Clarke not being rested for any ODI games make me question his sanity tbh.
It may not be particularly smart but you know what? I like it anyway. I struggle to take a game seriously the moment the selectors don't; the result automatically becomes contrived and pointless. Unfortunately this series will still be contrived and pointless because England have rested half their side but at the end of the day I think I'd actually be more comfortable with even players playing less games overall because they got workload-related injuries than playing more but having selectors destroy the integrity of the matches they didn't consider important.
It's not how I'd go about it if I was in charge of the side, I'll fully admit that, but as a neutal(ish) cricket fan I quite like it.

If we could cryogenicly freeze Clarke between test series I'd consider it.

Bad idea, would likely wake up with a stiff back.
Michael Clarke is probably best staying as active as he can. Rodney Hogg was saying a couple of days back he'd been talking to Steve Rixon, and Rixon said people just wouldn't believe how much preparation Clarke has to go through just to get out on the park. His back is nackered.
