The experienced middle order batsman Michael Clarke appointed as a new Captain of team Australia. The Australia Cricket board had to name the new Captain for Australia team as Ricky Ponting resigned from the captain ship of Australia team. The 29 years old will take charge of the one day side of Australia in the next month series against the Bangladesh. The all rounder Shane Watson is also appointed as the new vice Captain of team Australia.
It will be a big challenge for the young Michael Clarke to show the skill of a brilliant team leader in the upcoming series. The Ricky Ponting is one of the most successful Captains of team Australia. It will be interesting to see how Michael Clarke will perform in the upcoming challenge after his poor batting show in the World Cup 2011. It will be a big honor for this young cricketer and we will hope team Australia will raise once again in the Captain ship of Michael Clarke.
