Clarke wants to lead


Clarke, who missed the Champions Trophy earlier this year and Australia’s seven-match ODI tour to India due to a back injury, returned to the 12 member Aussie squad for the first Test against West Indies in Brisbane starting November 26.
The 28-year-old right-hander said at the moment he was happy to captain Australia in the Twenty20 format and would be more than delighted to get the job once Ponting calls it a day.

“I could sit here and lie and say I don’t think about it. The truth is I hope I continue to get opportunities, whether it be one-day cricket, now with Twenty20 cricket or hopefully one day I get the chance to captain in Test cricket,” Clarke was quoted as saying by ‘Daily Telegraph’.

“But it is all so far away. Right now, I am over the moon and stoked I have been given the chance to captain the Twenty20. My leader, still, is Ricky Ponting.  He is a fantastic captain, a good friend and is someone I have always looked up to,” Clarke said.
