Cricket Australia has today provided the following update on Australian Captain Michael Clarke following his injury in the first Carlton Mid ODI in Perth yesterday.

Cricket Australia Team Doctor Peter Brukner said: “Michael had scans today in Perth for his ongoing left hamstring problem and as a result  has been ruled out of the remaining matches in the Carlton Mid ODI Series.

“Michael will return to Sydney for further treatment and an update on his fitness for the first Test in Brisbane will be made in due course.”

Clarke has hence been ruled out of the rest of the series against South Africa, but will be assessed ahead of the first test against India.
