  1. I watched the first couple of overs from the start of play before I turned it off in disgust. You would think that Clarke would have instructed his pacemen to bowl at the stumps and make the openers play. Rather, we were entertained with deliveries bowled well wide of the mark with our gloveman struggling to avoid byes. The openers must have thought that it would be easy to mark time until it rained. A shameful display.
