Clarke might score in the final. These Aussie captains have the tendency to turn up for the big games.
Australia are overwhelming favorites. But if there is one team they must face from this tournament, its England. I think this is the best ever final of all three editions (both teams have been so dominating)
Clarke should continue the way he's been batting cause Australia have got a lot of good hitters, in fact everyone except him and number 10 and 11 can easily clear the ropes. I wouldn't mind an accumulator in the side if I had guys like Watson and Warner opening who rarely gets a slow start. Haddin and Clarke actually set it up for their hitters to have a go at the end unlike Kallis who nudges everything till the last 5 overs or so and then tries to hit the big shots himself which giives very little time for their hitters to have a go at it.
can't decide, on one hand what the hell does it take to beat australia here?
on the other hand, they've played 6 matches and found themselves in real trouble in 3 of those.
I think I might just pick australia because england put a lot of pressure on themselves when they play australia and might just lose their heads a bit when their calm measured approach has served them so well.
