    I was going to say, couldn't he have waited til after the final?

    Nah, good on him. Had a fine career, especially around that 07 WC win. Hope it prolongs his test career for a few years

    if it extends his test career by a year or two it would be great. He is not essential in ODIs anyways

    been a great ODI career for him

    Personally I am happy with this. Love to see him bat and this should help prolong his test career by a couple of years.

    yeah, good decision.

    Can't seem to remember him being crucial for Aus in ODIs
    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

    Who would be the obvious replacement? Bailey has been going through a bad run of form since the India tour, no?

    If it means he has a few more years of tests left in him, good.

    Average of 44 with 8 centuries and 50 fifties is no small feat.

    Good move. Hopefully it'll help him continue on in Tests for a few more years.

    Great opportunity for Smith to take the ODI captaincy and sit as Clarke's VC in the test team for a year or two.

    I think Clarke has had a significantly better ODI career than a lot of people give him credit for. Never a power player, but has played some great innings over a long career.

    Hoping he bats at #4 tomorrow and tons up, or that he doesn't have to bat at all...

    storm in a teacup brewing over his timing of the announcement. apparently the aussie journos at the conference think he's making it all about him.

    source - bryan waddle who also thinks clarke is being dire so grains of salt etc

    i couldn't care less when clarke announced it. meh.
