Oz captain 2nd most imp after PM: Lehmann
Putting to rest speculation about Michael Clarke’s dipping popularity within the national cricket team, coach Darren Lehmann said that Australian captain occupies the second-most important position after the Prime Minister and everyone wants him to be fit and raring to go. “He’s captain of Australia, the second most important position behind the prime minister as such, we need our captain playing well. When he played well he got a hundred in Adelaide and we won that Test match. We took a risk with that with his hamstring and the history of it but that was for good reason for obvious reasons as everyone knows," Lehmann told the Adelaide radio station FiveAA.

“We all get on, that's the great thing. Media can say what they like. Media will speculate and people are going to have their views. From our point of view we want our captain fit, which is great leading into the most important tournament for four years. We’ve also got the West Indies tour and the Ashes later, and we want him ready to go because he leads this side very well," he added.
