Australian captain Michael Clarke is not training at Adelaide Oval on Tuesday ahead of the second Test, but Cricket Australia insists he is not in doubt for the match.

Clarke rolled his ankle during the warm-up at training on Monday and completed a solid net session afterwards.

But a team spokesman said before Tuesday's training session he had pulled up "a bit stiff/sore. He will train tomorrow (Wednesday) and will play the game".

Medical staff will be anxious that Clarke not aggravate the ankle given his importance to the team that took a one-nil Ashes lead at the 'Gabba, due in no small part to the captain's sparkling 113 in the second innings.

As the Australians warmed up at Adelaide Oval, Clarke wandered out to the middle and inspected the drop-in pitch. As Australia's best player of spin, Clarke will need to be on his game as England considers recalling on left-arm orthodox Monty Panesar to partner Graeme Swann as the tourists seek to level the series.
