Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Infact since becoming captain the record is even more extreme with away average actually going down in the 30's All-round records | Test matches | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN Cricinfo
One bad start to a series = HTB now?

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
Don't think anyone could point to the last five Tests - especially those in India - and say he's especially struggled with the conditions. Struggled with the pressure of being the only competent batsman in the team, maybe.
He wasn't bad in India anyways..
As people have mentioned before, the main reasons for the differences in his averages has been the fact that his great run of form has coincided with series played at home. If the trend you're showing goes on for another few years, then you have a valid point, but atm it really isn't the case.
I think he's looked okay here, he's never going to be at his best at swing bowling but I think he showed at Lord's that he's in better nick than his scores suggest, but he seems to be finding ways to get out at the moment, which is unusual for Clarke since he took up the captaincy.
Clarke isn't a flat track bully/homester bully. He was ok in 05 in England, brilliant in 09 in England and now has struggled with injury yet still looks the best Aussie player this time. A fine player who is struggling for form and fitness with a poor team is always going to struggle. Look at Atherton in the 90's, not in the same class as Clarke but basically the same problems as Clarke has now.
Clarke overall: Home average - 61.9, Away Average - 41.9
Clarke since 2012 - Home average - 63.34, Away Average - 41.7
I think it has got to a point where it's not an aberration anymore but Clarke is outstanding at home and a decent batsman capable of some awesome innings' away. I don't think it's even a form thing. Due to whatever reasons, technical or mental, Clarke is a miles better batsman on home tracks than away and will probably end his career that way.
