We have to hunt in a pack: Clark

Fresh in the Australian squad, Stuart Clark has said Australia’s bowling success lies with its ability to hunt in a pack in the Caribbean.

Clark told the Sunday Herald Sun, that the bowlers would have to work together, as a group, in the absence of Brett Lee.

“I’ve said all along that spearhead thing, and people talk about it a lot, I don’t agree with it. We are a good bowling unit and I know people like to put that label on a certain bowler, but it takes more than one bowler to get a team out,” he said.

“There’s no such thing as a spearhead as far as I’m concerned.”

“I don’t expect the new ball. I don’t expect any favours. I’m going to go out there and do whatever I can.

“I’m OK with that. I have got better at bowling in the power plays and at the end and that’s what I’ll be looking to do well when I’m over there.”

The New South Welshman also stressed that Australia would rise back to the lofty standards they set for themselves, putting an end to their five match losing streak at the World Cup next month.

“When we go out there you’ll see a new Australian cricket team.”

“We just have to execute better and the plans that the Australian cricket team come up with need to be, as Mike Hussey said, more specialised towards individual batters.”

“To say we are doing everything right is incorrect and we will be working on different scenarios especially after the New Zealand trip to try and make that better.

“No-one can deny we’ve lost five straight games but we’ve had five or six players out as well. I am going to go into the same Australian cricket team that I left. We will be very positive, very confident.”
