    Michael Clarke barks up the wrong tree

    A classic example of the idiom 'barking up the wrong tree' is when Michael Clarke (bowling record against India, in India - tests: avg. 2.16, strike rate 7.3; odis: avg. 18.8, strike rate 21) consults Shane Warne (bowling record against India, in India - tests: avg. 43.11, strike rate 81; odis: avg. 52.85, strike rate 66) on how to bowl to Indian batsmen in India.

    Jamie Pandaram makes the whole thing even more laughable when he starts his report on Clarke taking tips from Warne with the words 'Shane Warne may yet come back to haunt India next month'!

    PS: There's no reason to believe that the title of the post is a snide reference to Michael Clarke's canine-referencing nickname! It just rhymed nicely, and fitted the context.
