    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Law of averages certainly caught-up with Clarke in the first-innings, certainly.

    good ball as well...

    do you not like him or just think he is overated ? (kinda is overated but given how much some idiots rate him it would be hard not to be)

    he is a very good batsman though still developing and improving to..

    Everyone has to fail at some point. I'm quite glad that it happened at a time when Australia were under no pressure whatsoever on a flat track.

    Well, good over I think 'ud be more accurate - two or three that turn away followed by one that goes straight on. The arm-ball in itself wasn't especially impressive.

    I don't like him - as a cricketer - because I think he is overrated. Nothing personal.
    I think he is flattered by his Test-match average and I think he's played above himself in the opening part of his Test-career.

    fair enough or though I dont know how you can dislike somone just for playing well...

    I dont think anyone expects him to avrage in the 60's probably not even the 50s.. he's talented enough ( he has a great eye and solid techneque) but his style of play probably suites a mid 40s avrage..

    With Clarke, I'll go on instinct, which tells me whatever he does otherwise, he'll always be a massive thorn in the Kiwis' flesh...

    I look at it another way, he should have been cashing in on a flat track, not getting out cheaply, it's not like he played a poor shot like Martyn, rather the bowler was better than him.

    Are you certain about that?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Everyone gets out cheaply some time or another... Better it happens on a flat track.

    I wasn't talking about the typo - more the certain being used twice

    Oh, that was deliberate.
    Of course, it can sound incongruous, depending on how it's read, but if you listen to it being said, can you see how it was intended?

    So you'd prefer batsmen to fail on bowler-friendly wickets and be a flat-track bully?
