Clarke considering to field all-pace attack for Perth Test

 Clarke considering to field all-pace attack for Perth Test Sydney, Jan 7 : Skipper Michael Clarke has said that he is strongly considering an all-pace attack for next week''s third Test at the WACA Ground.

Ryan Harris, who was the 12th man in Sydney and has been retained in the squad for Perth, will replace injured James Pattinson in the squad on the ground on which he starred during the Ashes last summer.

Clarke said last night that playing four quicks at a venue well known for its advantages for pacers was an option, although he is reticent to leave out spinner Nathan Lyon.

"Like I said after Melbourne before we played this match, I needed to assess conditions and see what the wicket was like but it is an option. I''d imagine there will certainly be at least four fast bowlers in our squad for Perth and we''ll assess conditions when we get over there," he said.

"I''m hoping that wicket is similar to what we played on against England last summer, that it''s got a lot of pace and bounce and some sideways movement. If that''s the case, there''s an option there but like I''ve said before I always love having a spinner in our team and I continue to say I think Nathan Lyon is doing a really good job for this team."

Australia played four pacemen - Harris, Mitchell Johnson, Peter Siddle and Ben Hilfenhaus - in Perth in December 2010, The Sydney Morning Herald reports. (ANI)
