Cricket Australia insist captain Michael Clarke will overcome an ankle injury and play in the second Ashes test.

Australia captain Michael Clarke is confidently expecting to be fit for the second Ashes Test, despite missing training yesterday because of his sore right ankle.

Clarke went over awkwardly on his leg during fielding drills on Monday, but was able to bat in the nets afterwards.

He sat out morning practice a day later, but is planning to resume his preparation on the eve of the match.

A Cricket Australia statement read: “Michael Clarke is not training today. His ankle is a bit stiff/sore. He will train tomorrow, and will play the game.”
