    and to quote myself (just for rik)
    Strange, all those pressure situations you just mentioned, he was basically given a liscence to throw his bat at anything, against England he was chasing a tiny total.
    "Age is just a stupid number"

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    Ch 9 commentary team veiws:

    most said Clarke, a few votes for love for the long term, short term however a couple suggested Lehmann and even bevan for the tour of sri lanka.

    the thing with Clarke and love is the fielding, both are excellent fielders which the team seems to need at the moment

    for someone who has seen a guy bat once you try to claim alot about him... and as for knowing anything about batting under pressure.

    being given a licence, well that may have applied to the TVS cup fiinal, there was still pressure and he still still did well

    as for the rest, he batted sensibly.

    there is always pressure chasing - but especially after losing early wickets...

    I would rather Clark than Love.

    I just dont rate Love at all. He has a good FC avrage but that's bosted by the fact he has like 10 double hunderd's. He get's out early alot.

    He just look's crappy in my opinion and not good enough for test cricket.

    How can your average be boosted by double 100s? Seriously do you understand how hard it is to go on? You've just given another reason why Love should be ahead of Clarke, he can actually build an innings and go on and make a massive score, Clarke has not shown that.

    Yeah I know but at test level batting at number six he is not going to make many big big scores especialy batting at the speed he does.

    And he does get out early alot!

    He does not look as solid at the crease or as technicaly correct as Clark and in all the test inning's he has playd were he has scored over 50 he has been droped at least once.

    I suppose you might say I just have not been very impressed by him.

    There is only pressure when your not in the strongest batting side in OD cricket. I'm sorry but only the 3-54 situation seemed like pressure to me. His debut was against England chasing a tiny total and in the TVS Final he was given 9 overs to throw his bat in.

    I think they're dead right. For about 5 years I've been saying Bevan is more suited to Tests. His First Class average is a "handy" 55. He just didn't fire when he had the chance. But if a second chance is given I think he'll do well. I mean his style of play just suits Tests perfectly. He used to be bad agaisnt the short ball but now he's pulling brilliantly and doesn't seem to have too much trouble with it.

    They'll never look back if they do give him a run, unfortunately I just don't think he's going to have that kind of luck.

    Yeah, Bevan would make a great player, I think. He can even bowl, no? *looks at Bevan's 10 wicket haul* :wow:

    the problem with bevan is that he is 33 and nearly 34 by the tour of Sri Lanka

    and that he doesn't bowl very often at all these days.
