Michael Clarke rules out ODI retirement
Australia captain Michael Clarke has dismissed any suggestions he might quit one day cricket after returning home from the Zimbabwe tour with a hamstring injury.
Melbourne: Australia captain Michael Clarke has dismissed any suggestions he might quit one day cricket after returning home from the Zimbabwe tour with a hamstring injury.
Clarke, 33, strained his hamstring in training before a one-day tournament against Zimbabwe and South Africa in Harare following a long break from the game and was forced to miss the first two matches, reports Sport24.
Upon returning to the team, he aggravated the injury during Australia's calamitous three-wicket loss to minnows Zimbabwe on Sunday, ruling him out of the rest of the tournament.
With Clarke having suffered back problems in recent seasons, Australian cricket pundits have speculated the skipper might be forced to give up one-day cricket after the 2015 Cricket World Cup on home soil.
Clarke, however, said that he still loved playing cricket, and would continue as long as he could.
