I don't think it's that likely, but he's 34 (I think) and seems to constantly give away good starts with daft dismissals, or has done in this series anyway. After Hussey I'd say he's the top six player most in danger.Katich? Well he didn't have a great ashes but he still averaged 42 and would surely still be rated as the best opener in the country at the moment?
Record Holder for consecutive wins, captained the side to a test series victory in India.Being the first Australian captain to lose a home series for 16 years, as well as being the first Australian captain to lose consecutive series in England for 110 years are serious black marks against Ponting's captaincy, though how much (if any) of the blame should be laid at Ponting's feet is definitely up for debate.
Im not sure. People certainly seem to rate him but what i have seen in ODI's hasn't convinced me yet, he certainly isn't any worse.It's simply really, is Michael Clarke a better captain then Ricky Ponting?
Would be very surprised if Clark plays again given that they were reluctant to pick him in this series.Will Clark and Lee ever play for Aus again?
Was impressed with Watson as well. Might make sense for him to give up bowling and focus on his batting and hopefully then stay injury free. He has the game and the technique, despite being an lbw candidate, I think a move down the order maybe good for him.How safe is Watson in the side if he's not going to bowl? He's very safe. It's an absolute myth that he needs to bowl to stay in the side. As this series shows, he can easily hold down a place as a specialist bat.
Will Clark and Lee ever play for Aus again? No, it's time to move forward. Well played to both of them though.
My concerns with North was that he only scored runs when Australia was already on top. In the 2nd and 5th tests, the ones Australia lost, he did nothing.What worked
Michael Clarke - love the bloke. WAG.
Marcus North - been great so far. Very reassuring at 6 after years of Symonds.
