    Still stupid to release it before the Ashes. At the very least it gives KP another chance to hypocritically tell Clarke that no one likes him.

    I understand that the context was he was talking to a UK audience on TV, however even allowing for that, it's such a stupid comment on so many levels; the main one being that Ponting is jealous of Clarke's batting?

    If there is anybody who harbours resentment it is Warne in not captaining Australia

    Also confirms my thoughts that Warne thinks good captaincy is all about attacking fields - if you set a leg slip, bat pad, three silly mid-ons...you da man.

    It wasn't hypocritical given the context. Use words properly you complete moron.

    Hey hey I commended KP's sledging that day, but no doubt KP telling anyone that they aren't liked is hilarious, even if its a retort.

    I fully agree but it still wasn't hypocritical. Acknowledge this and apologise or there will be pictorial consequences via VM.

    I think Clarke is a good captain, but the crap about his field changes and bowling changes is just guff for the large part. Its quite easy to take carefree gambles when you are well on the way to losing a test, not really much pressure is there.

    Have noticed one big difference between him and Ponting; long spells. Under Clarke, they basically don't exist, certain circumstances notwithstanding. If you so much as look like the bats are on top, to square-leg with you whereas Ponting would keep a bloke like Johnson bowling even if they were going after him.

    Probably the difference between playing all your cricket in a strong era vs reaction to it being over.

    He's the only Test captain I've seen who gives new-ball bowlers one-over spells if that one over is particularly horrid.

    lolwut, look at when Australia started bowling full and wide to Cook, Lyon went around the wicket to KP, and Trott was given odd field placings. Hardly a case of tactical gambles in garbage time.

    Given that, making the comments on the eve of an Ashes series is a bit stupid is it not?

    Yeah sure, Ponting's retired. But **** me, show a bit of respect for the blokes still wearing the baggy green, particularly the guy who inherited the poisoned chalice from you and who had to score a mountain of runs to make up for how crap you were in your last 2 years.
