Michael Clarke admits that his side are not getting carried away by their form following the series victory over the West Indies.

Australia captain Michael Clarke has claimed that his side will not be getting carried away following the series victory over the West Indies.

A five-wicket haul ensured that Australia wrapped up the series 2-0 this week but Clarke insists that the team still have a lot of improving to do.

Clarke said: "We as players don't consider ourselves as the number one Test team but we know that is a goal we're working to.

"I think we're ranked third now, so I still think we're a way off that. We need a lot of improvement to become the number one team.

"It's not just about one series or one summer - it's consistency that gets you to be the number one ranking."

Australia have lost just one of their last nine Test matches.
