Michael Hussey, the Australia batsman, has said captain Michael Clarke enjoys the full support of his team-mates and that Australia are headed in the right direction under Clarke's leadership.
Clarke has had a successful start to his captaincy, leading Australia to four straight series wins since taking over from Ricky Ponting. However, he has also been embroiled in the controversy over the dropping of opener Simon Katich, with the latter suggesting Clarke had a role in keeping him out of the team.
"If you want to be part of this Australian team, you've got to go with the captain and we respect the way he wants to take the team," Hussey told AAP. "Even someone like Ricky who has been captain, he's jumping on board as well and it just shows that the guys really do want to play for Australia, we do want to play under Michael and I think we're definitely going in the right direction."
