Clarke under pressure after batting troubles


Australia skipper Michael Clarke in under pressure after suffering a disappointing Twenty20 World Cup with that bat which ended with the Aussies defeat in the final against England.

Having played in all of Australia’s games Clarke only scored 92 runs at an average of 15.33 during the tournament. While his captaincy hasn’t been called into question there is now pressure on him after failing with the bat.

"There is no doubt the selectors will need to have a look at my performances," said Clarke after Australia’s defeat against England.

"I certainly know they haven't been up to scratch and as good as I would've expected throughout this whole tournament, and probably Twenty20 cricket in general," he added.

"I'm sure the selectors will have a look and if I'm not the right person for the No. 3 position and the captaincy of this team they'll make that decision."

"I'm stoked to have been given this opportunity to captain the Australian Twenty20 team. 'There's no guarantees in this world. For me, it's about getting back and preparing for our next tournament."
