Michael Clarke suffered a tame dismissal on the second day of the ongoing first test match against England.
He, as usual, was in the mood to try and make the spinner get unsettled with the use of feet and he was going about it pretty well.
But, on one occasion, he probably misread the length a little bit and went too close to the ball and thus, did not get the elevation that he wanted.
He ended up only chipping it and an easy catch went into the hands of Moeen Ali.
It was probably the last thing that Clarke and Australia needed at that point of time.
Clarke’s presence there at the crease at the stumps on day 2 would have made Australia’s position that much stronger.
But, not only did the Kangaroos lose him at a bad time, they lost one more wicket after that which put them under real pressure.
Now, they have to have a good couple of sessions tomorrow if they have to make a comeback.
At the moment, England is 166 runs ahead and Australia just has 5 wickets in hands.
However, Shane Watson, who is unbeaten at the moment along with Nathan Lyon, is in good touch, but, he will have to ensure he does not throw his wicket away.
Watson and Haddin will be the key for Australia from here on in.
