    Always been a fan of Clarke but Amla shades it for me for doing it higher up the order.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Love Amla more, has taken over 'the most likeable brilliant batsman' mantle from Dravid.

    Think Clarke is probably a little bit better though.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    Nah look, Clarke was a tool bag who claimed bounce catches, and who was someone douchey enough for Katich to want to throttle.

    He's a lot less douchey now than he was 2-3 years ago. Sure, the Australian cricket bogan public took longer to realise this than the non-bogans, and some of their reasons were **** (wahh he has tattoos) but nevertheless, there was a legitimate gripe against him previously.

    Think he has cleaned up his image incredibly now though.

    Don't see any reason why Katich wasn't the biggest cockhead in that whole situation.

    Nah Katich never gets angry. Clarke clearly at fault, Katich is a bloke who keeps his calm 24/7

    Yeah exactly, so my point is 3-4 years ago his "image" or whatever, just the way he presented himself, **** some people. He changed that, and became more likeable. However much of the cricket public probably only realised this about 12 months ago or so. There was a lag effect between him cleaning himself up, and everyone realising.

    His 300+ score helped for sure. There was a reason Slazenger didn't want to renew their bat sponsorship agreement with him. Their market research must have said something. Backfired big time though

    In any case, some of the reasons for hating him were legitimate (doucheyness, claiming grounded catches, just not looking like a guy ready for leadership), and some were petty (him catching a tennis ball in his underpants in a Bonds ad, tattoos etc.).

    doucheyness isn't a legitimate reason, no-one in aus. gave a damn about claiming grounded catches (we only care when it happens against us) and people cited tattoos as a reason for him not looking like a guy ready for leadership

    the going home from nz was unpopular. there was also a perception of not scoring runs under pressure
