Darren Lehmann confirms that Michael Clarke is fit enough to take on Pakistan A in a four-day match this week.

Australia head coach Darren Lehmann has confirmed that captain Michael Clarke will make his return from a hamstring injury this week.

Clarke was forced to miss the limited-overs matches against Pakistan due to the problem, and doubts were raised about his availability for the Test series with the same opponents.

However, the 33-year-old has made a full recovery in time to take on Pakistan A in a four-day tour match beginning on Wednesday.

"Clarke will be fine, he'll play the tour game," Lehmann revealed on Cricket Australia's website.

The first Test starts in Dubai next Wednesday.
