Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
**** sake, press the wrong key and the world's up against you. When you speak as many languages as me you can expect to make an error every now and again #smokeme
Probably gonna regret that statement.
I'd much rather have the best players setting up the game rather than having to play according to the match situation.
But sure, you're welcome to argue that a run is a run...in which case there's no point in discussing batting orders at all...
Is this a real post?
Tell me the teams around the world, and you're more than willing to go through history, whose best batsman bats at 4.
The role of a number six can be varied, however in an ideal situation they're there to top up after a good foundation has been established. Which Hussey does every single time, see: Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney.
He also needs to be able to bat with the tail. See the SCG against Pakistan.
Also needs to be able to build a partnership when side is in turmoil, see every situation Australia has been in in the last 12 months.

Ponting is a perfect example anyway. Started at 6 and as he became one of the side's better players he moved down to occupy 3 and 4.
Or would you say that he too should have stayed at 6?
I'm incredulous because you have no idea what you're on about. Ponting played well over 100 matches in the number three position, because that was the best fit for him and the team.
Jayawardene isn't even the best batsman in his team. Amla bats at 3 for South Africa.
FMD man, you literally are talking complete ****.
