I don't think it's achievable for Patty right now to play all forms of the game for Australia. To play all single game I think would be mad. That's only my attitude," the Sydney Morning indication quoted Clarke, as saying.

"We need to speak to the selectors and we want to make a plan for him, since he's got a bright future. He's got the likely to be an amazing cricketer for Australia, and we have to be stylish and make definite we look after him," he added.Cummins, who was named 'Man of the Match' in his presentation Test match, took seven wickets and scored crucial runs in Australia's clash against South Africa in Johannesburg.

He becomes the second youngest player in history to take six wickets in an innings.

Johnson running out of final likelihood in Tests: Clarke

Melbourne: Australia captain Michael Clarke have said that Mitchell Johnson is running out of last likelihood, as the left armer is all set to get a official pardon in the second Test in Johannesburg.

Johnson was basically ineffective in Australia's first-up loss to South Africa in wrap Town, lifelong his string of unsuited form over the past 18 months

With Pat Cummins likely to come into the attack, the skipper implied that Johnson's left-arm point-of-difference force save him further on of Peter Sidle who is also war for his spot, Fox Sports reports.

Still, Clarke made it clear to Johnson that the inimitability of his delivery won't be enough to save him for the Australian summer if he continues to fail.

Yeah, he knows. I talk to Mitch all the time. Mitch has no doubts about where he sits. He wants to be bowling at his greatest as well. He needs to be bowling fast and fluctuation the ball because he knows he's as good as any player in the world when he's responsibility that," he said.

With the exclusion of the Perth Ashes Test last December, Johnson has not managed a momentous wicket haul since he cracked New Zealand in March 2010.
