Melbourne: Despite Australia suffering a humiliating 0-4 Test series whitewash against India, coach Mickey Aurthur is unlikely to be sacked as Cricket Australia has backed him to continue at the job though the Board termed the team performance as "unacceptable".

CA Chief Executive James Sutherland said the team management, including Arthur and national selector John Inverarity, retain the Board's support.

Arthur, who took charge as coach in November 2011, has a contract until the end of the next World Cup, to be held in Australia and New Zealand in 2015, but has been under pressure after presiding over the country's heaviest defeat in a Test series in 34 years.
