Fantastic innings again from Clarke. Can't believe I was saying silly things like AB was better than him a year or so back. 4 200s in a year is outrageously good.
The bowling was just embarrassing. The only good thing to come out of this miserable day is that Imran Tahir will never play international cricket again. I honestly don't mind someone trying their heart out, hitting a length but still conceding 5rpo because of great batting and a flat track. However, bowling 20 overs and going at 8rpo by tossing up full-tosses and half-trackers is really unforgivable.
I still can't believe I actually witnessed that. I mean, I'm not dreaming, right?
^to be fair there was a period when AB was also god-like.
If they can pull it (which i don't think they can from 5 down) they should try and bat out all day tomorrow.
I hope Clarke goes on and gets 300 and beyond tomorrow. In fact 400 would be sufficient, he deserves it.
Clarkeh averaging more than Ponting atm.
I went to bed at lunch when Clarke had just arrived. Checked in the morning to see Clarke in nearing a double again and Hussey on ton again. Sadly I cant say I did not expect such development :(
What to blame SA performance on?
michael clarke is magic like stars
