It almost seems like destiny for Michael Clarke to get a ton on Test debut, and that’s how it panned out. Great knock from a player who really should have been in the Test team a year ago. He’s a very mature 23 year-old, and congratulations to him.
I am sure we have seen the start of a fine Test career, and probably someone who will become Australian captain – I’ll stick my neck out and say he will succeed Ponting in the role.
Congrats also to Anil Kumble on reaching 400 Test wickets. Now onto Warnie to make that world record his own!
