Australia head coach Darren Lehmann has confirmed that Michael Clarke is now completely fit and he’ll return to the side to lead against Bangladesh.

Darren Lehmann confirmed, “Yeah, he’s playing mate.”

As Clarke is returning one player will have make way for him. It is expected that George Bailey will be out from the team but the way Shane Watson is getting criticism, he may miss the Bangladesh’s world cup 2015 match on Saturday. Lehmann didn’t disclose the name who’ll miss.

He said, “It will be a tough call on whoever misses out. But you don’t win the game with just eleven. It’s the squad, that’s the mentality we’ve got.”

Before few days back Michael said that he is desperate to represent Australia in 2015 world cup and hope to get into play shortly. He said, “I’ve missed enough cricket over the last six months. As soon as I can get back on the park I’m keen to play every game for Australia. But again, if I’m told otherwise than that’s what I’ll do but I hope that once I get back on this park I’ll be given every opportunity to play as much as I can for Australia.”
