Sydney: Australian captain Michael Clarke has resigned as a selector of the team just hours after coach Mickey Arthur was sacked, a report said on Monday.

Fairfax Media said Clarke's decision to relinquish his selection role was part of the coaching restructure that will be confirmed at a Cricket Australia press conference in England later on Monday.

The decision to grant the captain and coach selection powers was a key part of the far-reaching Argus review into Australian cricket in 2011.

"Cricket Australia will hold a media conference with James Sutherland and (high performance coach) Pat Howard in Bristol tonight to discuss the coaching structure of the Australian team," Cricket Australia said in a statement.
