Coach Arthur delighted with 'Captain Courageous' Clarke's brazen aggression

Port of Spain, Sun, 22 Apr 2012 ANI

Port-of-Spain, Apr 22(ANI): Australian skipper Michael Clarke's aggressive captaincy is bringing out the fighting spirit in his teammates, much to the delight of coach Mickey Arthur.

"That is something that Michael and I share - I'd rather lose a Test match trying to win it than just play dull cricket, because then you don't learn anything about your players," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Arthur, as saying.

"You want to see players stand up in pressure situations. I'd rather that we went all out to win a game rather than just let a game meander. You also want to put players under pressure, you want to take them a little bit out of their comfort zones," he added.

Clarke's propensity to risk defeat in pursuit of a win has never been more evident than on the current tour of the West Indies, where he has twice declared in a bid to earn a win.

Clarke became the first Australian captain to declare behind in the first innings in the Trinidad Test, and subsequently won the game.

Arthur also expects the Australian players to go all out for a big finish in the final Test in Dominica.

"We want to finish off the summer on a high. We think we've had a pretty good summer and we certainly don't want to let it slip now," he said

"One game to go in Dominica, we want to maintain standards and finish off on a really good note. And then we can tick the box on having a really good Test summer," he added. (ANI)
