One moment everyone seems to be against Clarke and the next he's a superstar for scoring some runs. Personally I consider him to be a wonderful player. It's nice to see him doing well with the bat whilst leading from the front as captain.

i dont ever know why so many people dont like him??
i mean Ponting even is a grump and he is loved?
Clarkey always seems like a good bloke, speaks well, is a quality captain and strategist, as well as 3 centuries in last 4 tests. maybe it was jealousy over having Bingle as his GF, i dunno?
PS. his new missus was on the tele yester, shes gorgeous!

I think you're definitely right. I think it's just public jealously in that he's captain of Australia, he has an expensive and equally fancy car, he was dating a model, and I think people mistake his confidence as arrogance. I hope he continues to make some runs because he's in wonderful form with the bat at the moment.

I think his new girlfriend is more attractive than Bingle, actually. He's done very well!

Great past two days cricket!
13 wickets yester on a beautiful Sydney day

And Clarkey just hit his 100 before lunch with Ponting on a nervous 97 over lunch getting ready for his first century in 2yrs!!
The Indians field is like its set up for the test match board game

Spent all day watching the cricket. India never even looked like getting a wicket today. What a captain's knock from Clarkey, especially the selflessness he showed to declare when he was only 6 off beating Taylor and Bradman's 334. Top bloke.

i really hope this gets everyone off his back, i never understood the hate. i think it might, my friend who hates him (but cant give a good reason why) said today "you know he's not too bad a bloke" so maybe!!!

i was predicting slog it til tea and then just take 2-4 overs after tea and declare, just to annoy the indians. but i'm sure he knows best (plus was prob a smart move to show the public he is a team man, not that going to tea wouldve been a selfish move)

I never got the hate either, some of my friends think it's because of his reputation as a 'pretty boy'? Perhaps people are jealous or something, he always came off a good guy and someone who loved his cricket.

Yeah everyone was expecting that, the look on Mark Taylor's face when he declared said it all. Definitely picked up some respect for that selfless act. Hopefully bad weather won't stop us from getting a well deserved (and historic) win.

What a comprehensive victory for the Aussies today. Great day of cricket, India's tail played some great shots and kept the game exciting. Clarke bowls a couple of overs and gets Tendulker, that guy can do no wrong at the moment.

Pattinson picking up an injury is so unfortunate. I don't get the love for Ryan Harris either, but no doubt he'll come into the squad.

hahahha.

Wade has ripping it up in the CWB series. Probably won't see haddin play another ODI. Not too sure about Wade's potential as a test replacement though.
