Michael Clarke is hopeful of featuring in the World Cup after revealing his recovery from hamstring surgery is progressing as expected.

The Australia captain suffered the injury in the first Test against India, handing the captaincy over to Steve Smith for the remainder of the ongoing series.

Added to 33-year-old Clarke’s chronic back problem, the injury caused fears over both his short- and long-term international future.

But in his column for News Ltd. newspapers on Wednesday, Clarke wrote: “The biggest thing for me at the moment is getting back on the field for the World Cup.

“I have been told by medical staff that I am in as good a condition as I can be a week after undergoing the surgery. There is no swelling and no pain when I walk.

“I can’t wait to begin stage two of the rehab process which involves starting to run again.”
