'We were like sitting ducks'

india Updated: Mar 08, 2013 23:52 IST

The Australian cricketers behaved like "sitting ducks" in the opening two Test losses against India, said wicket-keeper Matthew Wade as he called on his teammates to be more aggressive and take some load off skipper Michael Clarke.

"We're just sitting ducks. We've got to try to be a little bit more aggressive and put the pressure back on theirbowlers," Wade said. "We might have to be a little bit more aggressive at times to get India to do something different because if they get into a rhythm and just bowl dot after dot, the game's not going anywhere for us," he was quoted as saying by the Australian media.

Clarke confident
Michael Clarke today vowed to make a strong comeback in the remai-ning two Tests. "It is not in our nature to give up without a fight. We have every chance of making a comeback and levell-ing the series 2-2. We feel if we win one we can win two," said Clarke.
