Good news for Australian Cricket Team as their regular captain Michael Clarke will be fit before 2015 world cup.

Alex Kountouris said, “Michael is progressing well in his rehab and is currently running on a regular basis and has commenced batting. He was reviewed by the surgeon in Melbourne on Sunday who was very pleased with his progress.”

“He remains on track for a return to play by 21 February, the date we spoke of when the squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup was announced,” Kountouris added.

Australia head coach Darren Lehmann was looking happy to hear that Clarke’s injury is progressing pretty well and he will connect with the team before main tournament begins. Lehmann wants to see Clarke playing warm up games as well if Surgeons declare him fit before the world cup begins.

Lehmann said, “It’s probably a little bit too early to tell. I saw him yesterday and spoke to the surgeon … and he’s ahead of schedule, which is pleasing for us. We’d love him to play some warm-up games if he could (but) we’re guided by the surgeon and the medical staff there.”

Australia will play opening match of 2015 cricket world cup against England on 14 Feb and also play warm-up matches against India and United Arab Emirates.
