Australian skipper Michael Clarke is doubtful for the fourth and final Test starting in New Delhi on Friday. Clarke is suffering from a bad back, a problem that has often troubled him in his brilliant career.

Clarke is expected to spend much of the next few days on the physio's table. "My fingers are crossed I will be doing everything I can to give myself the best chance," he said.

"I guess I am always pretty positive, touch wood I haven't missed a Test match due to injury so far in my career and I wouldn't like this to be my first one. If I can't perform at my best, if I feel I am going to let the team down, I won't be taking the field," he added.
