SYDNEY (Agencies) - New captain Michael Clarke wants Australian cricket to provide a united front heading into important assignments in Sri Lanka and South Africa before home series against New Zealand and India. The players, through the Australian Cricketers Association, are at loggerheads with CA over a new memorandum of understanding; the states are feuding with CA, and the chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch remains under pressure and, according to some sources, in an "untenable" position. "This is the important time for me to spend as much time as I can with the people that make a lot of the decisions about our game and make sure we are on the same page, [with] the same goals and heading in the same direction," Clarke said last night after landing in Sydney from Dhaka. "I'm excited to be home and have a little bit of time off but I'm very keen to get to Melbourne and spend some time with CA, the selectors as well, to make sure we're heading in the right direction," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted him, as saying. "I think we all want to see the same goals. We want to see CA going in that one direction - going forward. We want to do everything in our power to give guys the opportunity to perform, we want to support whatever players are selected but it's about making sure everybody's plans are the same. I'd like the communication to stay as strong as it can be." The national team enters a four-month break before a tour to Sri Lanka in August.
