Michael Clarke: Australia captain could return for World Cup

24 December 2014: Australia captain Michael Clarke has said he could return from injury in time for the World Cup.

Clarke, 33, had surgery on a hamstring injury last week but had feared that his career could be over.

In his column for an Australian newspaper, Clarke wrote: “The biggest thing for me at the moment is getting back on the field for the World Cup.

“I have been told by medical staff that I am in as good a condition as I can be a week after undergoing the surgery.”

Australia will co-host the World Cup  with New Zealand. The tournament begins on 14 February.

Clarke was injured during Australia’s 48-run first Test win over India at Adelaide.

He had injections to relieve spasms in his back while batting on the first day but returned to the crease a day later to complete a century.
