New Delhi, Nov 1 (UNI) Despite being on the backfoot for most part of the third Test, Australian vice-captain Michael Clarke believes his team still has a chance to win the match.

The Australians are trailing by 79 runs at the end of the fourth day's play with India at 43/2 in their second innings.

But Clarke is positive that Australia is still in with a chance to win the Test.

''Certainly we will come out tomorrow with a positive mindset. We will attempt to get them out tomorrow morning as early as possible and try to win the match,'' Clarke told mediapersons here today.

The 27-year-old denied that the Australian batsmen were in any kind of pressure after the Indians posted a massive total of 613.

''Our batting line-up is very strong. With this line-up we can achive any target that we are asked to,'' Clarke asserted.

''Most of our guys came up with good contributuons. Matthew Hayden, Ricky Ponting and Katich all came good in this Test match,'' he added.

Commenting on the injury to Indian skipper Anil Kumble, Clarke said,''I don't know exactly what happened to him. I hope he will recover soon and will be able to bowl properly.'' UNI AB CS AS2001
