Michael Clarke, the captain of the Australia Cricket Team has made it clear to his teammates that only consistent performances will keep the side on top against India as they play the second Test of the 4 match series against India at Sydney, which will be a historic event for the ground as well as it will be the 100th international Test match to be played there.

Clarke, speaking ahead of the second test, was extremely proud and satisfied with the efforts put up by the players of his team and he also was full of praise for his former captain Ricky Ponting.

Having won just 5 of the last 16 matches played by the Australia Cricket Team which includes only one series win against a hapless Sri Lanka side in the subcontinent, Clarke is looking for some consistent efforts from all the departments of his side in order to have the Test series in their back pockets. But Michael Clarke knows it will be not as easy as they sound but is confident that his side is prepared enough to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.

According to Michael Clarke, the team has been playing some very good cricket at times but then again, there are times when the team plays absolute rubbish. All he is asking is that the players be a little more consistent with their efforts.

Clarke also added that the Australia Cricket Team has been learning from the mistakes that they have committed in the past and according to the skipper, they have been practicing hard in the nets on their techniques, looking after minute details so that they keep all their mistakes off the field of play and this gives Clarke the added confidence that they are well on course for an emphatic victory.
