Melbourne, May 24 (ANI): Michael Clarke has been retained as Australia’s Twenty20 captain after his tenure was under review over his poor batting in the shortest version of the game,

Clarke was named skipper when the two limited-overs squads were announced today for matches against Pakistan and England in Britain.

Clarke will need to show a marked improvement in his batting at the T20 level if he is to retain the post beyond the two T20 matches against Pakistan, The Herald Sun reports.

The one-day squad named today is the one, which won the ODI series in New Zealand earlier this year, except that Shaun Marsh has recovered from injury and returns to the side in place of Adam Voges.

Twenty20 Squad: Michael Clarke (Captain), Cameron White (Vice-captain), Daniel Christian, Brad Haddin, Ryan Harris, Nathan Hauritz, David Hussey, Mike Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Dirk Nannes, Steven Smith, Shaun Tait, David Warner and Shane Watson. (ANI)
