Clarke will join Windies tour late

7:46 am on 8 March 2012

The injured Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke won't be leaving tomorrow with the rest of the national side for their West Indies tour.

Clarke is still waiting for the results of scans on the hamstring he injured against Sri Lanka on Tuesday night, and the early prognosis isn't encouraging.

There's no chance of him playing in today's Tri-series one day decider against Sri Lanka in Adelaide, and he'll miss at least the early part of Australia's one-day series in the West Indies starting on Saturday week.
