Melbourne: The Australian team led by Michael Clarke having several Twenty20 specialists is determined to set the record straight by winning the Twenty20 World Cup final.
Australia will go into tonight”s final against archrivals England in Barbados to win the one major title that has eluded them so far.
“I”m stoked we”re in the final. We have come a long way in this form of the game. But we didn”t come here to make the final; we came here to win the final,” The Herald Sun quoted Clarke, as saying.
“I think we have achieved a lot as a team, but it would be extra special tomorrow to top it off with a victory. It would be fantastic. There”s no doubt we”d be much happier leaving Barbados with that one last trophy we don”t have just yet,” he said.
Clarke stressed that victory tonight would be no consolation for Australia”s 2-1 Ashes series loss in England last year.
“It won”t make up for it, but it would be a fantastic start to what is going to be a great summer back at home. I”m certain every Australian and every English person loves seeing that battle. It”s always tough cricket, in any form of the game,” he said.
“I”m certain tomorrow will be no different. So for now, it”s about focusing on a huge game – a final – against a very good team,” Clarke said.
