    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.

    Agree but he's declned markedly in the past year. Maybe he will also peak in his early 30s.

    I hope Clarke goes on and gets 300 and beyond tomorrow. In fact 400 would be sufficient, he deserves it.

    that was mostly in the ODIs, not tests to be fair.
    since taking up keeping,however, his batting has suffered

    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
