A video of Australian captain Michael Clarke addressing the media ahead of the 9th One-Day International (ODI) ahead of Sri Lanka at Hobart.

 

Clarke said the former Australian captain Ricky Ponting will be missed in the Australian team after his departure in the ODI team. Clarke, a part of the selection panel said the team selection was based on planning for the 2015 World Cup.

 

The Australian captain said he is fully fit and is raring to play against Sri Lanka.

 

Ahead of the game, Australia can be termed favourites because of the home advantage but given how the Sri Lankans have adapted and exploited the conditions to their advantage is also hard to ignore.
