Oz cricketers not weak against spin: Clarke

Dubai, Apr.23 (ANI): Stand-in Australian cricket team captain Michael Clarke has refuted suggestions that his players are not good against spin.

Reacting to media reports that surfaced after Pakistan won the first of five one-day internationals against Australia here, the Daily Telegraph quoted Clarke as saying: “I certainly don’t think we have a weakness against spin but we haven’t been performing as well as we would have liked against them.”"Whether we like it or not we are going to be facing a lot of it so we have to practice hard against it and probably have to be a little more disciplined, especially on a wicket like that that is spinning,” he added.

Clarke admitted the batting debacle was a serious disappointment.

Pakistan cruised to a four-wicket win after bowling Australia out for a measly 168 in the overnight series-opener. (ANI)
