As always, Australia’s lost to England has brought such a backlash towards Skipper Michael Clarke fearing the fact that they may also lose Ashes which starts this December.
Australia’s playing legend Ricky Pointing has come forward for the defence of his team mate Michael Clarke praising him for the type of character he has shown in the field.
Pointing lauds Clarke for his commitment and fight back his team showed in the World Cup. He further stressed that Australian team is ready for the Ashes Challenge quoting “We Want to play test against India to prepare for the Ashes. India is the top ranked test team and have proved to be tough challenge, he added.”
Australia is on a tour schedule to India starting this October and have accepted the offer of playing more test in India then the one-day matches.
