It's amazing though, when I think about how poor Clarke was during the Ashes, that he's somehow come out of it with these rewards.
I hope he drops himself to 5, he'll have to take the pressure off himself by scoring runs and he hasn't so far at 4.
I love Watto as a player but he can be an absolute tool in the field at times, on top of that if I'm not wrong he has no experience of captaincy whatsoever at any level.
So as I said before I would have been much more comfortable with the idea of having a guy like Haddin as the VC.
Also I don't get this Clarke was batting better at #5 so push him back there thing, Clarke now is the second most experienced batsman in the test side and now he is also the captain so its his job to stabilize the shaky top-order rather than asking some green-horns to do that.
