Michael Clarke has said sorry for not walking during a dramatic last-over dismissal that swung the second Test further towards England. Clarke was 80 when he glanced Kevin Pietersen’s part-time offspin to Alastair Cook at short leg, leaving Australia 137 runs from forcing the tourists to bat again.

Clarke took a series of steps towards the dressing room before stopping when he realised the umpire Tony Hill wasn’t going to raise his finger. England immediately referred the decision and the first replay showed Clarke was out.

“Just want to apologise for not walking off the ground tonight when I hit the ball,” Clarke tweeted. “I was just so disappointed, my emotions got the best of me.”
