Darren Lehmann says he doubts Michael Clarke has played his last game for Australia.
The 33-year-old injured his hamstring while fielding on the fifth day of Australia’s nail-biting first Test win over India in Adelaide and will miss the remainder of the series.
He remains in serious doubt for the World Cup, with Clarke worried it could be even more serious than that.
“There’s a chance I may never play again,” he said.
However his coach says he would be surprised if that was the case.
“I think he will be back. You have your fingers crossed, we will wait and see,” he said.
25-year-old Steve Smith has been named as stand-in captain for the remaining three Tests against India.
The second Test begins on Wednesday in Brisbane.
