Skipper Clarke to undergo scans

7:27 am on 13 February 2012

The Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke will have scans today on a hamstring injury which could rule him out of his team's next Tri-series one dayer against Sri Lanka on Friday, and force the selectors to return to Ricky Ponting as captain.

Clarke suffered a strained right hamstring during Australia's last over loss to India in last night's game in Adelaide.

Today the Australian selectors will name a new squad for the next few Tri-series games.
