Even though captain Michael Clarke has admitted that he may never play again after he tore his hamstring and injured his back during the first Test against India, Australia head coach Darren Lehmann is confident he will return to represent his country once again.
Due to the injuries he sustained during the first Test, Clarke has been ruled out for the remainder of the Test series.
But, Lehmann still believes that Clarke can fully recover from his injuries prior to the start of the 2015 World Cup.
“I think he will be back. You have your fingers crossed, we will wait and see,” he said. “He needs to get it right. He knows that, we know that.
“One-day cricket is an explosive game and we need guys fully fit, all the time.”
Lehmann also revealed that Australia may freshen up their pace attack for the second Test in Brisbane.
“We will see how they pull up,” he said. “We will pick the best team to get 20 wickets. A couple of them are sore but the next day or two will tell. It’s a quick turnaround.”
