Make Junior the top Aussie selector

It is time to ditch Hilditch and go for Mark Waugh.

In February this year, as reported in Fox Sports,

Mark Waugh said, “If he’s (Clarke) captain, he’s got to get going. You’re the main man and you probably have to bat at three or four.”

Clarke had struggled to adapt to the shortest form of the game, and Victoria skipper Cameron White was the man to lead Australia in Twenty20 cricket, Waugh said.

“I don’t think (Clarke’s) batting is suited all that well to Twenty20 cricket. With that back injury, I’m just thinking will it shorten his Test career. Cameron White could easily be captain, Waugh said on Inside Cricket.

Hilditch, on the other hand, was confident Clarke is the right man to lead Australia in April.

"It's going to be a very big tournament for Michael and he's really looking forward to it," Hilditch said.

"I am sure Michael is going to have an impact (in the next World Twenty20)."

Mark Waugh has been following Australian domestic cricket as a TV commentator for a few seasons and clearly has a better understanding of 'what form is'.
