Clarke rubbished suggestions that he would quit one-day cricket following the end of the tournament and says all focus will be on Australia’s quarter-final clash with Pakistan on Friday.
“I don’t think you’re ever owed anything in this game of cricket, so we have to make sure we’re ready to go, which we will be,” Clarke is quoted as saying by The Daily Telegraph.
“I’ve had injury concerns since I was 17 years of age and I’ve managed to play over 200 one-dayers and over 100 Test matches.
“(Injury) hasn’t stopped me to date and I don’t think it will do after this series either.”
Clarke missed three months of cricket after suffering a hamstring injury during the Test series against India in early December.
The 33-year-old made his return to the national side in Australia’s third World Cup game against New Zealand.
