Australia captain Michael Clarke will return from injury in Saturday's World Cup match against Bangladesh.

Clarke had surgery on his hamstring less than two months ago and was set a deadline of this weekend if he was to take any part in the World Cup.

He has come through two warm-up matches, scoring 98 runs, and coach Darren Lehman confirmed the news.

Clarke will replace George Bailey, who led Australia to victory over England last week.
