Michael Clarke was the subject of some criticism when he chose to ignore the advice of Australia's physio Alex Kountouris and play through a hamstring strain in the latter part of the home ODI triangular series.

However the misadventures of the team so far in the Caribbean have proved that Clarke's hesitance about missing matches was well-founded, as the tourists are now facing the prospect of a first series loss since he took over the captaincy from Ricky Ponting.

Having recovered from the hamstring strain that he aggravated by playing on in Australia, Clarke flew out to the West Indies today in order to have plenty of adaptation time ahead of a warm-up match and three Tests against the hosts in Barbados, Trinidad and Dominica.
