Sydney - Captain Michael Clarke hopes to play in Australia's tour match
against Sussex later this week despite looking troubled by his back
during his second innings knock at Lord's.
According to the stuff.co.nz website, Clarke said the discomfort was nothing out of the ordinary and he expects to take the field at Hove on Friday.
Clarke said he'd line-up if fit, acknowledging the pressure on him to perform.
"At the moment we're not performing as well as I would like."
