Australia captain Michael Clarke is confident his injured back will come good in time for next week's first Test against Sri Lanka as he continues to consider the batting order.

With Phil Hughes recalled to the side following Ricky Ponting's retirement, it was expected the left-hander would bat at No.3 forcing Shane Watson down a spot.

But speaking at the Big Bash League launch for Sydney teams the Sixers and Thunder today, Clarke admitted the make-up of the batting line-up was still very much uncertain.

Clarke said he has been weighing up the options over the last couple of days and is no closer to making a decision ahead of the match in Hobart next Friday.
