Aussies are on right track: ClarkeDecember 10th, 2008 - 5:44 pm ICT by ANI
Sydney, Dec.10 (ANI): Australian vice-captain Michael Clarke says his team is firmly back on track ahead of the opening Test against South Africa to be played at the WACA next Wednesday.
“The WACA is going to be very fast and bouncy and I think we will be in for a bit of pace from the quicks from both sides. Australia has been very successful on wickets that have bounce and carry and some pace and our record at the WACA and Gabba, where the wickets have been very fast, over the years has been very good,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Clarke, as saying.
Clarke is expecting a difficult series from a side that have their eyes on usurping Australia as the No.1 team in the world.
“I have no idea what their preparations have been like, but they can take some confidence from a series win and they will be keen and fired up for Australia,” he said.
With the disappointment of the 2-0 series defeat in India now firmly behind them, vice-captain Clarke said the convincing performances against New Zealand had restored the players” belief. (ANI)
