Summary

  • BRISBANE, Sept 17 AAP – When ex-Australian quick Stuart Clark read veteran Peter Siddle had earned a Test recall in the morning paper he “spat his cornflakes out”.
  • But Clark still backed an all out pace approach by Australia against Pakistan in their upcoming Test series in the UAE, ignoring ex-speedster Mitchell Johnson’s advice they should go with three spinners.
