In SAS we have some criteria for determining the number of clusters using the PROC CLUSTER procedure, which are "CCC" cubic clustering criterion (Sarl 1981), Psuedo F (PSF), and Psuedo T square (PST). My question is do thsese criterion exists in R, I tried to search and got one hit (BIC) in Mclust, which I am aware of, any input is greatly appreciated.

Function cluster.stats in package fpc gives you some more. (See Gordon book reference on the help page.)
