Clarke will play 1ST Test in Adelaide says Haddin

Australia's wicket-keeper batsman and present stand in Captain, Brad Haddin has backed skipper Michael Clarke to feature in the first Test against India which begin on 9th December at Adelaide Oval. Clarke joined the team in Adelaide on Friday afternoon and practiced in the nets on Saturday morning. The Australian skipper is struggling with hamstring injury which he re-aggravated during Australia's ODI series against South Africa and is waiting for a fitness test on Saturday. Australian selectors have added Shaun Marsh to the 12-member squad but Haddin remains confident that Clarke will be fit for the first Test. "Clarke had a good hit today, he's going to back up this afternoon and will be involved in our session," Haddin said before training session. If Clarke misses out, Haddin will be named as Australia's captain. But the wicket-keeper said that he no thought of leading the team on Tuesday. "I haven't thought about to be honest. He is doing well we want Michael out there," Haddin added.
