Australia skipper Michael Clarke came back home to Sydney on Sunday optimistic his injured back wouldn’t rule him out of the Champions Trophy or 1st Ashes test series later this year.
The 31-year-old was forced to return for the test series against India due to the recurrence of a back problem which has stricken him for much of his career.
Clarke, who’s been in outstanding form with the bat over the last year, is slated to play in the IPL before going to England for the June 6-23 Champions Trophy.
The 1st of back-to-back Ashes test series then begins at Trent Bridge on July 10 and Clarke is eager not to skip it.
