Clarke wants to continue as Australia Twenty20 captain

Michael Clarke's leadership qualities have come under the scanner in the World T20 in the West Indies, but Michael Clarke said he was enjoying every bit of the duty and wants to continue as Australia's T20 skipper.

"No doubt, I'm disappointed we couldn't win the World T20, win the final, but I've really enjoyed the opportunity," Clarke said yesterday after returning home following Australia's loss to England in the World Twenty20 final in the Caribbean.

"I've loved playing with the guys, I've had a lot of support from people back at home, the people who came and watched the games in the West Indies, and family and friends, so it's been great and I'm enjoying it," he said.

Clarke's future as T20 captain is likely to be decided over the next week as the selectors sit to name the Australian squads for the tour of England, where they will play Tests Series, one day matches and T20 games against Pakistan and the hosts.

He also has the backing of Test skipper Ricky Ponting, who feels Clarke is the future of Australian cricket.

However, it is not Clarke's captaincy that has been a matter of concern but his poor run with the bat.

The right-hander himself admitted that it was high time he reinvent his aggressive manner.
