Michael Clarke's injury-ravaged cricket career may not be as jeopardised as initially feared with the Australian captain and team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris on Wednesday saying that the surgery to fix his hamstring injury went "really well", giving him a good chance of being fit for the World Cup.
Australia were on Wednesday dealt a blow as their all-rounder Mitchell Marsh will not bowl again in the remainder of the second cricket Test against India due to a hamstring injury on the first day at the Gabba.
Captain Michael Clarke was not ready to play cricket at the moment due to a hamstring injury but it was hoped he could be available for the first test against India in two weeks, Cricket Australia physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said on Thursday.
Injured skipper Michael Clarke should quit playing One-Day Internationals (ODI) after the 2015 World Cup in order to finish his career as one of the true greats of Australian cricket, former captain Allan Border has said.
Australia fast bowler James Pattinson has recovered from the rib injury he suffered during second Test match against South Africa in Adelaide and is training well, according to Cricket Australia`s (CA) team physio Alex Kountouris.
