The skipper of Australian team, Michael Clarke admitted of the fact that his performance in the ongoing first test against Pakistan has been sort of disappointing. Australia are on the verge of being defeated against Pakistan in the first test.

He also said that it was a big mistake from his part for not opting for the Decision Review System (DRS) after he was given LBW in the second innings. Replays even showed that there was a bit of bat before the ball went on to hit the pads. Clarke regrets for not opting for the DRS.

On analysing about the poor performance of the Australians, Clarke said that there was a problem facing the spinners and the batsmen were dismissed in the deliveries which did not spin much.

Clarke said that his performance in the first test match had been disappointing with the bat and there are no doubts to it. He also said that it was a big mistake, an error on his part for not taking the help of D.R.S. He said that he felt hugely disappointed when he watched the review of the decision. He also said that the ball in which he was dismissed did not spin much and it would have been better had he used is bat instead.

Clarke also said that in subcontinental conditions, the first innings performance generally holds the key. One needs to go as big as one can. He said that he knew Pakistan had the best batting conditions but he thought that they showed their class in the second innings by batting brilliantly on a wicket that held a bit of spin.

Clarke said that it was the slowness of the wicket which troubled the Australian batsmen to a considerable extent. He also said that the spin was a little bit of inconsistent. He thought that they should have played better as their preparations for playing spin was quite up to the mark.

Presently, Australia are struggling in the test and are on the verge of losing it by a huge margin.
