It took him something like 30 minutes to go from 95 to 100. In a situation when time is of the utmost importance that is simply unforgivable. He may have just won the series for us, and I thank him for it.

Clarke should play out a couple of more overs and declare to see if a result can be attained. But it doesn't seem as if the pitch is offering anything so it would be a very bold move.

I'm inclined to agree, and it would be in character for Clarke's captaincy. I'm particularly happy for him as his captaincy has been excellent but his difficulties lately with the bat have had many questioning how long he might stay captain. Realistically I don't think there's much chance of rolling SL as the pitch is pretty flat, but if there were more games to come I'm certain Clarke would declare and try to damage SL's morale by trying to knock over some of the top order cheaply. Since it's the last game he may decide to just have some batting practice but that would surprise me, since he's a particularly attacking skipper, just the sort we love.

Congrats to the Aussies for a solid tour. Looking forward to their next test series when they face the South Africans.

I think we'll struggle in South Africa, but I have no doubt our guys will give it a red-hot go. We're still rebuilding and there's some way to go yet so South Africa really should win. I think we may be able to beat India when they come down under for our summer though. How good is Mike Hussey eh? No wonder we call him Mr.Cricket. I've never seen a more professional or dedicated player.

Mike Hussey is 1 of my favorite players. After reading an article where he said that he practiced for 7 hours straight after a coach told him to. The coach was kidding though but Hussey took it seriously. Just shows the guts he has. He bats the most correct way. Truly a great example of how to be a great player.

And I know as a fan you're nervous but I wouldn't underestimate your side. With a batting lineup of Ponting, Clarke, Watson, and Hussey, and a pace attack of Johnson, Siddle, and Hilfenhaus, I would say your team is strong. It will be a great series. I predict a 1-1 draw from the series.

I'd be happy with 1-1 in South Africa. Only time will tell mate. I think Ryan Harris will be key to our chances. He really is a terrific bowler. If he can stay fit our chances will improve greatly.

A real big shame Harris just can't manage to stay healthy. He's a great bowler. Injuries are part of the game though and there's nothing we can do about it.

The Aussies need an attacking spinner and a swing bowler like flemming or bracken. The current attack has workhorse type bowlers but without johnson firing it looks a little one dimentional .
South African batting is not dependent on two players like Sri Lanka so it will be much harder to get the twenty wkts
