Australia’s World Cup Pool A match with Bangladesh on Saturday could be called off if a cyclone hovering north of Brisbane hits the city.

Michael Clarke missed the 111-run win over England at the weekend as he continued his recovery from a hamstring injury.

But Cyclone Marcia may also scupper Australia’s plan to bring their captain back into the team at the weekend.

Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin confirmed that Australia, who have been forced to train indoors because of the weather conditions, want to bring Clarke back into the team.

Should the fixture be abandoned the two sides could have to share the points.

The storm has already forced evacuations of coastal communities in Queensland and heavy rain is forecast in Brisbane over the next few days.

A minimum of 20 overs per side have to be played for a result to stand.

Australia are also considering bringing fast bowler Pat Cummins back into the side as part a four-man pace attack alongside Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood.
