Port of Spain (West Indies), Apr 13(ANI): Australian captain Michael Clarke has stressed on the need of starting better in the second Test match against the West Indies at Port of Spain, and believes his players needs to pull up their socks.
Clarke specifically pointed out Australia's poor fielding performance, which saw them drop a total of seven catches in both Windies innings, and said no top team can afford to do that.
Australia won the Barbados Test match after looking dead and buried for the first three days of play, but they eventually sealed a victory in fading light as they chased down 192 on the final day.
Clarke also rued the fact that none of his batsman went on to score a century in the match, and has urged his boys to start strongly in the second Test match.
"We need to continue to learn about the conditions here and make sure we start better, whether that be with bat or ball in Trinidad," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Clarke, as saying.
"But on good wickets against a tough fighting opposition you can't afford to drop chances. We definitely have to improve in that area," he added.
The Australians, who arrived in Port of Spain on Thursday, can win the series if they win at Queen's Park Oval. (ANI)
