Oz coach Arthur says he has no fears on Clarke's cricket future
Adelaide (Australia), Mar. 8 (ANI): Australia's cricket team coach and hierarchy have no fears for skipper Michael Clarke's long-term future in the sport, despite a hamstring injury costing him a chunk of the looming West Indies tour.
Coach Mickey Arthur said that he was awaiting the results of scans on Clarke's left hamstring on Wednesday, and conceded that early prognosis "doesn't look great".
Clarke strained his left hamstring while making a century in Australia's eight-wicket loss to Sri Lanka in the second tri-series final on Tuesday night.
Already ruled out of the finals decider against Sri Lanka on Thursday, Clarke will miss at least the early part of Australia's one-day series in the West Indies starting on March 16.
Describing Clarke as one of the most professional guys in the world of cricket, Arthur told reporters in Adelaide on Wednesday: "He is very methodical and very professional, so he has got every chance to keep getting it right."
Stuff.co.nz further quoted him, as saying: "We were just looking through the stats last night, funnily enough, when we were having a chat - I think Mike has missed 15 ODIs through injury (but) he hasn't missed a Test yet. That is a pretty good record, so no area for concern just yet."
The results of Clarke's latest scans are likely to be made public some time today. (ANI)
