    tbf I didn't know how **** Wade would be.

    Still have hopes for Nevill though.

    Wade is averaging 40 with the bat at test level which is more than respectable.

    Sure he has plenty of room for improvement but he is the least of our concerns at the moment.
    dude don't bother arguing with him just call him a **** an add in an acronym like tbh or imo, no capitals, no smilies and it's done

    Poor shot tbh.

    Kept low and turned quite a bit, but shouldn't be cutting off the rough.

    Woah, Sehwag is averaging under 50 now. Quite a downfall.
    It's the pitch, stupid.

    Lol. He was playing injured and his daughter almost died. He's the best keeper in Australia and a more than decent bat.

    Sehwag and Tendulkar clearly better but not quite in form right now. I'd take him vs. anyone in the Indian lineup right now vs. spin.

    I just love his use of feet - so many visiting players just don't use their feet and rely on forcing sweep shots and things like that. Proper use of feet neutralizes so many things on these pitches.
    I dunno if they are clearly better tbh. They spend more time doing it because of their home conditions but he's pretty damn good.

    Would not have mattered what shot he played as it turned square and kept low

    Well, clearly they do get more practice. But when in form, I'd have to say that both Tendy and Sehwag are pretty destructive even against really excellent spin bowlers in all conditions. IMO anyway. That's not a knock on Clarke at all though.

    Not at the moment, mind you.

    Nah, if he was playing with a straight bat late or getting outside off he had a much better chance.

    Cutting off the rough is a big risk right now.
