  1. As captain of the team, my performances have been nowhere near the level and the standard they need to be an Australian cricketer and to be captain. “The boys have worked hard, I don’t blame anyone in that change room. “As a team we haven’t performed as well as we needed to be beat England, and as a captain I certainly haven’t led from the front.”

    Only Clarke can tell this.
