Ashes 2013 Clarke still 'confident' of series win

Australia captain Michael Clarke insists his team can bounce back after losing the second Ashes Test by 347 runs and win the series, starting with victory in the third Test at Old Trafford.

Victory inside four days at Lord's gave England a 2-0 series lead, but Clarke said: "I am still confident we can win this series. I heard a lot of the crowd laugh when I said that but we have seen just about all our top order can make a fifty; we need someone to go on and make a hundred."

England have now won the last four Ashes Tests, and five of the last six.
