Clarke should be sent back to List A cricket.
Can't believe Swann still hasn't had a bowl. Even if he came on in the very next over and bowled unchanged until he finished his ten, he wouldn't bowl out until the 45th, and I doubt Strauss'll want a spinner bowling that late. Safe to assume he won't be bowling ten which is absurd.

Witnessing the worst of Michael Clarke as a ODI batsman. Australia are in a perfect position to press the advantage, 3/115 after 25, and yet we have a set batsman scoring at 2-3 runs per over against a leg spinner playing his second game and a batsman who pretends to bowl.
It has been frustrating watching Australia self destruct over the past two years. Hopefully we only have to endure 2 more years of this before Tim Nielsen gets a heart attack and Hilditch et al are drafted into the army to fight terrorism overseas and then we can replace them with real people.

I enjoy reading vitriol about Clarke more than I enjoy watching him bat.
I'm feeling optomistic about our ODI team at the moment. I reckon we could get to be dangerous, like NZ, which would be cool.
Think England's bowling isn't too bad, it's reasonably disciplined. If you could pick a batting line-up mooted a few times in this thread (chuck in KP, Trott, etc.) then it could be a top 4 side. Don't have the match winners to be at the top of the tree.
