Not tasting it hard
Starc was the least impressive of New South Wales' four seamers on Thursday but it would come as a major surprise should he not be named by national selection chairman John Inverarity on Friday in Australia's squad for the second Test in Adelaide next week.
I am telling you, if Starc's the answer on an Adelaide belter against the best batsmen in the world, then you're asking the wrong question

It's all rhetoric, really. The opinion of the blokes actually facing him is what counts for most so I'd be interested in what they're saying over and above anything else.
This is probably what his face looks like when he comes up with one:
"The appeal of cricket comes as much from the artisan as from the artist"
Clarke has a few really great knocks from before his current purple patch (Lords '09, for example) but they were somewhat soured by the fact they were often rearguards. A score in the first dig, instead of some daft dismissal, would have helped his team a lot more. I doubt he'd dispute that either. Seems to have finally become that Ponting/Waugh-like lead-from-the-front guy of late and Australia's fortunes have gone with it.
He had another belter in Sri Lanka.
Was only 60 or 70 odd, but it was an amazing knock given the conditions.
Ah Blewett, how i'd turn homo for him. Thats it, im making a Blewett pull shot compilation video. and maybe a cover drive one too, it arouses me to even think of watching such a great video. Will not be making a video of him being bowled through the gate by a nipping little off cutter, it would go for HOURS......
His ton in Perth against England alone is a pull shot extravaganza. What a knock that was.
AND WHERE THE **** IS FOOTAGE OF HIS 214.
EDIT: @ Youtube, not you specifically.
His best contribution to cricket was his bowling.
