Michael Clarke congratulated the Australian team for victory against South Africa in fifth One-Day International (ODI) at Harare. Clarke also made an update on his hamstring injury, and said that he would do whatever it takes for Australia to get back to playing.

 

 

Australia clinched victory against South Africa by 62 runs. Mitchell Marsh scored an unbeaten 86 off 69 balls and took the crucial wickets of Hashim Amla and JP Duminy. He was rightfully adjudged the man of the match.

Clarke had a forgettable tour to Zimbabwe, with him missing out on Australia opening two matches due to hamstring injury. He made a comeback in the fourth ODI against Zimbabwe, but Australia lost that match and Clarke was injured again forcing him to miss the team’s remaining matches.
