Michael Clarke unhappy with his team’s performance
Hyderabad: Australian cricket captainMichael Clarke on Tuesday said his teams performance is “unacceptable” and chided his batsmen for not taking enough responsibility.
“India deserve a lot of credit. They outplayed us in every facet of the game. There is no doubt we have a lot of work to do,” Clarke said after Australia were thrashed by an innings and 135 runs in the second Test.
“The batsmen haven’t put enough runs on, and there is no excuse for that. There will be no break between the Test matches. There will be a lot of hard work, I can assure you. You don’t get better sitting on the couch,” a disappointed Clarke said.
“We have had guys get in and out without making big scores. That’s unacceptable. There had to be partnerships with both bat and bowl like India showed us. We haven’t scored enough runs in the first innings in both the matches. Our batters have to show a lot of responsibility,” he added.
