New Delhi: Recovering from a back spasm, Australian captain Michael Clarke trained with the team ahead of the fourth Test against India but remained a doubtful starter for the match, beginning on Friday.

"I still have 24 hours, just need to make sure my treatment goes off well. I'll take the call on the morning of the match," said Clarke at the pre-match conference.

"It's the same disc issue I've battled on and off since I was 17. I have to make sure that I'll remain injury-free for the next assignment. I'll have to first assess my injury and then take a call. I haven't missed a Test through injury since my debut in 2004 and I'll do everything to keep it that way ahead of the fourth Test."
