Look I realise you blokes are all NSW centric, but even Clarke admits his career is on the line as it should be and now he is pulling the old back injury routine.If he is not 100% and could not get through a Shield match then he should not be selected.First, I'll give you a tip. Use paragraphs.
Secondly, Michael Clarke does have the respect of the players, just because a news paper article says he doesn't does not make it so.
My team for the first test.
Hughes (Katich not considered because of lack of match fitness and form)
Harris (Bollinger not considered because of lack of match fitness)
Secondly the wonder boy is not a 20/20 player and should not be the Captain of the Australian team.End of story.The 50 over game suits him better. Finally why would you select two spinners on a pitch which will seam? Keep North and get rid of Hauritz and replace him with a quick or another batsman since Watson can bowl his seamers.
