Melbourne, Apr 16 : New captain Michael Clarke wants to give his views on the review of Australian cricket, following the team's disastrous Ashes campaign.
Clarke returned to Sydney on Friday evening after leading Australia to a 3-0 one-day whitewash of Bangladesh, his first assignment since taking over from Ricky Ponting.
Clarke said he enjoyed 100 per cent support from his teammates, who now acknowledged it was his team rather than that of his predecessor's, who was also part of the squad.
While looking forward to a break, Clarke said he would also contribute to the review following Australia''s disastrous Ashes campaign.
"This is probably the important time for me to spend as much time as I can with the people who make a lot of decisions about our game and make sure we are on the same page and wit the same goals and we are heading in the same direction," Clarke said.
"I'm excited to be home and have a bit of time off, but I'm very keen to get to Melbourne and spend some time with Cricket Australia and the selectors as well," Fox Sports quoted him, a s saying.
Clarke acknowledged he would face a testing first full season in charge with challenges against strong opposition in Sri Lanka, South Africa and India looming over the next year.
"We have some pretty tough cricket ahead of us, the next 12 months are going to be really full on, both Test and one-day cricket and leading up to a Twenty20 World Cup," he said. (ANI)
