Clark destroys Australia and media does same to selectors

Paul CollingwoodDespite one of the first good days for Australia in the series, the Australian media has taken the selectors to task for having overlooked the presence of Stuart Clark in the squad. Clark, who did not feature in the team's plans in the first three test matches was finally selected for this fourth, Headingley test match, and ended with figures of 3/18 in the ten nagging overs of impeccable lines and lengths that he bowled.

The first day of the match saw England being shot out for 102, before the Aussies took control by getting to 196/4 by the end of the first day's play. Clark broke the back of the English team by picking up the wickets of Alastair Cook, Paul Collingwood and Stuart Broad, before Peter Siddle took over the ran through the tail with a five-wicket haul.

Sydney Morning Herald's Jamie Pandaram said that it was the selectors' resistance to the selection of Clark couldn't have been highlighted more strongly as it was due to his bowling that the hosts could not even survive for even 33 overs. He added, "Clark's comeback could not have been more emphatic; 10 overs for 18 runs and three scalps. He was at his miserly best, conceding his first run after 17 deliveries, and beating the bat repeatedly"

Peter Roebuck said that although Siddle captured five wickets, it was Clark who was the pick of the bowlers with his spell of 3/18. He added that 'Clark looked his old self, denying the batsmen soft runs, squeezing them tight, drawing them into prods and taking outside edges.'

There were other newspapers who said that the bowling spell of Clark stuck it up to the Aussie selectors, and said that he was back with a vengeance against a side which has always struggled to play him. Clark had been one of the leading wicket-taker for Australia in their last Ashes triumph of 2007, when they had won the series 5-0.

The English team had a rather shocking first day as it first lost Andrew Flintoff to an injury and then had to delay the toss by ten minutes to get an update on Matt Prior's injury. Prior had sudden back spasms and there was a reasonable chance that he would not have been able to play in the game, but in the end, he made it to the playing eleven.

Apart from that, Ricky Ponting continued to be booed by the English crowds, as has been the case throughout the test series so far.
