Ashes 2013: Michael Clarke praises battling Australia
By Ben DirsBBC Sport at Old Trafford
Australia captain Michael Clarke lauded the character of his side after his magnificent innings of 187 put the tourists in control of the third Test.
The Aussies made 527-7 declared in their first innings with England 52-2 at stumps on day two at Old Trafford.
"We've copped a little bit of criticism after the first two Tests," said Clarke, whose side are 2-0 down.
