Australia Skipper Michael Clarke has been missed out of the ODI Series against Pakistan in the UAE and he is also doubt full for Tests than follow. Michael Clarke flew home from the Tri- Series in Zimbabwe. Due to Hamstring Injury
If Clarke were to fail to spot the two-Test series it would be a major blow for Australia, given his ability in spinning conditions and the struggles the rest of Australia's batsmen have displayed on the same surfaces. Kountouris said a conclusion on Clarke would not be made until closer to the first Test, which begins in Dubai on October 22, after a four-day warm-up match in Sharjah.
Australia's series against Pakistan begins with a Twenty20 international on October 5 in Dubai, followed by three ODIs in Sharjah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. George Bailey is expected to skipper the ODIside in Clarke's absence.
