Tour in doubt ... Michael Clarke. Photo: Getty Images
Australian captain Michael Clarke's tour of the West Indies is in jeopardy because of another hamstring injury.
We leave for West Indies in three days ... I don't want to make a judgment until I make a scan, I think I would be silly to do that.
Clarke will have scans on his injured left hamstring, which was strained while making a century in Australia's loss in the second tri-series final against Sri Lanka in Adelaide yesterday.
He is long odds to be fit for tomorrow's deciding final in the best-of-three series against the Lankans.
And Clarke is also in doubt for the looming tour of the West Indies, with Australian players due to fly out on Friday.
"I have done something to my left hamstring, I don't know to what extent," Clarke said.
"But it's obviously not feeling good at the moment, that is for sure.
"We leave for West Indies in three days ... I don't want to make a judgment until I make a scan, I think I would be silly to do that."
Clarke only returned last Sunday from a strain to his right hamstring, which sidelined him for three games.
The captain admitted he went against the wishes of Australian team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris by returning so soon.
"It's a tough one, I pushed really hard to try and get back for this finals series," he said.
"And I tried my best not to give Alex much of an option, to be honest.
"So I feel for him as well as my left leg at the moment because I know he probably would have preferred me to take it easy.
"But I wanted to be part of this finals series.
"But after straining my right one, I probably favoured my left over the past couple of weeks, 10 days, and I have done a bit of damage there."
