    The difference between Clarke and the other cricketers who found a way to succeed in Twenty20 is that other cricketers did it through copious amounts of domestic and IPL cricket.

    No indication that Clarke will ever play anymore Twenty20 cricket than the occasional international match every 3-4 months followed by a World Cup every 1-2 years, how a poor Twenty20 cricketer is to improve at international level is beyond me. I don't want a cricketer in the Australian side that is 'learning' the game.

    Haddin is a strange case for me, as from what I've seen hes a naturally attacking batsman. I would of thought T20 would suit him just fine.
    Yeah but he hardly gives himself a chance to do the same with his continued refusal of IPL and Big Bash.

    TBF, the Big Bash isn't a "refusal", he's just never available during the Christmas/New Year period when they play the matches because of Test duties.

    Jarrod Kimber is quite profound sometimes. Amongst the profanities, that is.

    "It seems the main reason not to give White the role at this stage is that he might be good at it. That will make Clarke’s promotion harder to justify."

    A number of th comments in this thread are interesting given Australia just made the final of the WC in this format. From reading them you'd think we'd been KO'ed in the first round.

    FWIW I think they're just happy to let him go because they're grooming him for the test captaincy. Personally don't agree with Kimber - if White proves a good T20 captain, I fail to see how this would in anyway compromise Clarke's elevation to test skipper - if that's what he's saying.

    Saying that about White is like saying Kieswetter should open in tests for England because he did well in T20.Strange.

    Everyone knows Clarke will be the next Aussie test captain (providing he has no silly Warnelike indescretions beforehand) once Ponting retires.The only debate really is whether it will be after the World Cup or later down the line.

    Think most people who saw Taylor from 1995-97 (excluding his immediate family and therapist) would take you up on that.
