    Ftr, haven't Hussey and Ponting both said Watson would be a good captain? No wonder Clarke thinks they're dickheads, who the **** would say such a thing?!

    Warney talks a lot of **** in order to stay in the limelight, but sometimes just a little bit of it is true. That quote about Ponting being closer to the truth than most. No doubt there's a lot of 'they shoulda made me the Captain' but Ponting was a rubbish Captain trading on what the ATGs in his side could deliver. The 'tried to do the best he could' line is a real smack to the face.

    such a gun
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    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

    Warne, what a cock. Bet he's still jealous that he himself wasn't captain of Australia. The same way he still hold petty jealousies against Steve Waugh and Gilchrist.

    I have read Ponting's book and there's nothing wrong with what he wrote of Clarke. It's just a shame that the media grabbed the two negative lines and ran with it.

    Some observations:

    - Warne is an attention-seeking child. It's his THING. Part of the reason the man in the pub can identify with him.

    - Warne clearly doesn't like Ponting on a personal level. And was clearly angered that Ponting was captain of Australia after Waugh (who he also hated)

    - but .... in a way he is right. I always thought Ponting was a poor captain. He just managed to hit his peak as a batsman at the right time. And what a peak it was! So in a way he led by personal example - but I felt he was both a poor communicator, and an even worse tactician. In short, the best batsman in a team of great players ... but yes, poor captain. No doubt.

    - Clarke may have imagination, but he's still a total c ...

    My two cents
    World XI Since 1990 -

    1. Gooch 2. Dravid 3. Ponting 4. Tendulkar 5. Lara 6. Kallis 7. Gilchrist 8. Akram 9. Warne 10. Ambrose 11. McGrath

    Warne was probably worried a few punters had forgotten about him.

    Inspired by the critically acclaimed book 'On Warne', by Gideon Haigh, comes this year's most anticipated release, Shane Warne 'On Ponting'

    Isn't this just the latest in a long line of examples of Warne attempting to keep himself relevant by using the media to take a shot at someone? I remember when Gilchrist retired, Warne wrote a tribute to him in some newspaper, which was basically just a rant about how he thought John Buchanan was ****.
