Australiahave announced that Michael Clarke is to be their new Twenty20 Captain, Clarke has been Australia's vice captain for the best part of a year and has led the national team a few times in the absence of Ricky Ponting.
Australia’s form in Twenty20 Cricket has been patchy. They were knocked out of this summers Twenty20 World Cup in England in the group stages after suffering losses to the West Indies and Sri Lanka.
Australia then went on to lose the Ashes in an epic series 2-1 to England and following that defeat Ricky Ponting announced his retirement from Twenty20 Cricket.

Australia then won the One Day Series 6-1 and Clarke led Australia in the 1st 3 of those matches.
Following that One Day series triumph in England, Australia then went to South Africa and retained their ICC Champions Trophy title, by beating New Zealand in the final.

Australia's next stop is India for a ODI series.

If you are a Bettingperson then you would do well to back Australia to win that series.
