Clarke to skipper Australia T20 against Pakistan
Advertisement
#1
Quote:Michael Clarke was Monday retained as skipper of Australia's Twenty20 squad for July's series with Pakistan in England despite his below-par batting performances in T20 cricket.

Clarke admitted his place in the team was under threat after a poor run of form continued in a seven-wicket World T20 final loss to England in Barbados earlier this month.

Clarke's top score was just 27 in the Caribbean tournament and he ended the event with 92 runs at a meagre average of 15.33.

"There's no doubt the selectors will need to have a look at my performances," Clarke told reporters after the world T20 final.

"I certainly know they haven't been up to scratch through this whole tournament and probably in Twenty20 cricket in general.

"I'm sure the selectors will sit down and have a look and if I'm not the right guy for number three and the captaincy then they'll make that decision."

But selectors Monday stayed with Clarke as skipper of a 14-man squad to play Pakistan in two T20 internationals at Edgbaston on July 5 and 6.
