Michael Clarke has said that Australian cricketers are well educated in regards to what is right and what is wrong, while answering a query about his views on the recent IPL 2013 spot-fixing scandal.

Clarke said, should his side successfully defend their Champions Trophy one-day title, it would give them a huge boost ahead of taking England on in the Ashes series which follows.

The 32-year-old is seeking a pick me up ahead of the Ashes next month after a humiliating 4-0 test series loss to India which was also marked by serious splits in the squad which resulted in disciplinary action being taken against several players, AFP reported.

Clarke — who is bidding to regain the Ashes after two successive losses — says all his energies and his team's will be focussed on retaining the one-day title they won in South Africa four years ago.
