Clarke says Australia have left the Lord's Test defeat behind them and will put up a strong show against England at Old Trafford. (Pitch battles at Manchester all part of the game for Cook)
Michael Clarke, writing in The Daily Telegraph, has said that Australia have left the Lord's Test behind them, and that, while history cannot be changed, "great lessons can be learnt from what goes before to make for better planning and preparation".
Ahead of the third Test at Old Trafford, starting on Thursday (August 1), Clarke also said: "England were the better team at Lord's but we know we can beat them. There are three Tests left and we always turn up to a game believing we can win."
