Australia captain Michael Clarke believes that his side can still win the Ashes, despite losing the second Test to England at Lord's.

Australia captain Michael Clarke believes that his side can still win the Ashes despite going 2-0 down in the series following their defeat at Lord's.

The Baggy Greens fell to a 347-run loss to England as they were bowled out for 235 in their second innings on day four of the second Test.

Clarke told reporters: "Our performance with the bat in the first innings was unacceptable. Our shot selection was poor and we didn't have the discipline England had.

"I'm still confident we can win the series. I heard a lot of the crowd laugh when I said that at the post-match presentation, and rightly so from where I sit today. England have outplayed us."

The third Test at Old Trafford begins on August 1.
