    Why doesn't Clarke face the new ball music?

    Ok he was found wanting at #4 but surely after the runs against the Indians he has the confidence to step up again.

    It ****s me, tbh. That's exactly how you want to go after someone as a pace bowler. Any straighter and it wouldn't have drawn that uncertain shot, any wider and he could have more easily left it. Was pretty much the perfect ball to guys who know how to bat.

    His average at #5 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> #4. He will go there however when Ponting/Hussey quit.

    What troubled me with Ponting's dismissal was he was so late on that, his front foot was more than half a foot up in the air when the ball took the edge. That would be embarrassing on second watching for a player like him.

    you reduced the batting order to 3/not many a few times....
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Shocking but hey we are almost past 47, so that's something.

    Really really want Khawaja in our top 3, not concerned if he doesn't rotate the strike.

    Morkel just bowled a similar delivery he did to get Ponting out and Clarke played at it as well. Not so easy to leave those imo.

    Wow, just noted that only 3 players average more than 40 with the bat in the current Aussie lineup, surely first in ages?
