    Hardest job in cricket

    Keeping wicket? Fast bowling? What is it?
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    Surely you mean being an English player with KP in the dressing room.

    I would say being Michael Clarke. Has to bat for the whole team, deal with injury ridden bowlers and punish players for not doing homework. Tough job that is.
