Clarke says he will only be a part-time bowler

Abu Dhabi, Apr. 28 (ANI): Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke has said that he is quite happy being a part time bowler in spite of helping his side to take a two-one lead in the ongoing one-day series against Pakistan here.

After top scoring with 66 on a slow, spin-friendly pitch, Clarke followed it up by taking 3-15.

“In conditions that spin I can do an okay job, that part-time job I guess, but I’m certainly not a frontline spinner,” Fox Sports quoted Clarke, as saying.

“I tried to wait as long as possible before I had to bowl, to be honest. It’s always good to bowl in conditions like that, when the ball’s spinning, obviously it makes it a little bit harder to score. For me it was just about trying to put the ball in a half-decent area and hope some spun and some didn’t and fortunately I had a little bit of luck,” he added.

While Australia’s bowling has been solid throughout the series, Clarke admitted there was work to be done on the batting. (ANI)
