Australian captains rarely return to the ranks because they aren't needed. Not sure that is the case this time around.

Mixed feelings on this, I thoroughly dislike the man, but that made the contests all the more enthralling. Do I have the same antipathy towards Clarke? Not yet.

The Reverse Sweep

I actually quite admire Ponting - my jibes against are more due to the respect I have for him as one of the all-time great batsmen. He speaks his mind, is tough and uncomprimising and is the only leader of note in the current Australian side. History may prove me wrong, but Clarke does not appear to be much of a leader and if anything Australia are likely to go backwards rather than forwards under his stewardship. As a Pom, that is music to my ears!
