|CANBERRA nike air max sale clearance , Oct. 7 (Xinhua) -- Former Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting has leapt to the defense of his successor, Michael Clarke, saying to doubt the captaincy of Clarke is "quite ridiculous."
Clarke arrived home this week from Australia's 2-0 thrashing by Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates and was bombarded with questions over whether he remained the best man to lead the national team.
Ponting said on Friday that, despite Clarke's poor form in the recent two Tests, Australia should not change its leader ahead of the World Cup air max 2018 sale clearance , starting in February.
"I think that was quite ridiculous, to tell you the truth," Ponting said of the criticism.
"The team's done some amazing things in the last couple of years and got themselves back up to No. 1 in the rankings in the two forms of the game at least; it's had some amazing series whitewashes and things.
"We know that out of the last couple of weeks the guys didn't handle the conditions that well over there (in the UAE) but it is two Test matches. A bit of a blip on what's otherwise been a pretty good copybook for the last couple of years.
"So hopefully they can learn from their mistakes over the last couple of weeks, move on and be a better team in Asia for coming tournaments."
When he assumed the Test and one-day captaincies from Ponting in 2011, Clarke set about improving his already excellent batting record. In 2012 air max 2017 sale clearance , he became the first person to score four Test double-centuries in a calendar year.
However, his past 16 Test innings have yielded an average of 27. 46 runs and he only made it past five runs in one of his four innings against Pakistan.
Meanwhile, Australia's one-day team has also struggled and was defeated by minnows Zimbabwe in August.
Steve Waugh, Test captain from 1999 to 2004, also backed Clarke 's tenure as leader air max sale clearance , saying he "could not understand" the short- sighted questioning.
"Every player goes through a time when they're not scoring runs, " Waugh said.
"But he's had an incredible run -- five-nil against England last year, beating South Africa away (this year) was an amazing result for Australia."
"So you've got to put it into context. It was two Test matches, we didn't play well. Let's judge the side after maybe another six, 12 months and see how they're going. But I think he's done a fantastic job."
Clarke's focus now turns to the one-day game with Australia hosting South Africa in five one-day internationals starting in Perth on Nov. 14.

US first lady Michelle Obama said she was amazed by the country’s culture when she tried her hand at Chinese calligraphy for the first time on Friday.
"I want to try again, it’s beautiful," she said after writing the Chinese character 永 (yong), which means "forever" in English.

She made the brush strokes under the guidance of a Chinese student at the Second High School Affiliated to Beijing Normal University.
The character she wrote was a typical one for calligraphy skills training. Yang Jie, the class teacher, said ancient Chinese calligrapher Wang Xizhi spent decades writing the character.
"Mrs Obama has done very well as a beginner," she said.
Obama is on a weeklong visit to China with her mother, Marian Robinson nike air max sale , and her two daughters, Malia and Sasha. It is her first trip to China and also the first official visit by a US first lady to the country without the accompaniment of a US president. The family arrived in Beijing on Thursday evening.
China’s first lady, Peng Liyuan, who invited Michelle Obama to China, accompanied the guests throughout the day. The US first lady’s office said earlier that Peng designed the entire schedule for the tour.
President Xi Jinping and Peng also met their guests in the afternoon at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse.
Xi said he "cherishes the well-established good working relations and friendship" with the US president air max 2018 sale , according to a Foreign Ministry press release.
Xi also said he "has kept close communication" with the White House through channels including meetings and phone calls.
"I believe that through concerted efforts China-US relations will keep advancing to the goal of the new type of relations between major nations," Xi said.
Obama said she had been impressed by her experiences during the day and expected to make more visits to China. Peng later hosted a dinner for the guests.
The two first ladies turned on the style. Peng wore a dark blue, long suit dress in the morning and a black Chinese-style suit for the official meeting. Obama was dressed in black and white in the morning, changing into a red dress in the afternoon.
In the morning at the high school, Lu Yuhong air max 2017 sale , an outstanding student in the elective calligraphy class, acted as mentor for Obama’s Chinese calligraphy skills.
"I was very nervous at first," said Lu, 17. His right hand shook when he showed Obama how to write the chara.
