Clarke vows to keep pressing for win
Australia captain Michael Clarke vowed to keep making ambitious declarations even if it meant risking seeing his plans come back to haunt him.
Clarke set the West Indies a 215-run target off 61 overs in the second Test on Thursday, after declaring on 160 for eight, only for torrential rain to wash away any chance of a result.
His decision to tempt the West Indies to force a result had paid dividends in the first Test in Barbados. “In my entire career, my goal has been to help the Australian team win as many games as possible and I guess now that I am captain I have the opportunity to show that.
When there is a chance for winning, you’ve got to have a go at it,” said Clarke.
