Mini BioMichael John Clarke (born 2 April 1981) is an Australian cricketer. He was appointed captain of the Test and ODI teams on 30 March 2011. Nicknamed 'Pup', he is a right-handed batsman, and occasional left-arm orthodox spin bowler. Clarke was also stand-in captain for the final Test of the 2010–11 Ashes series.
Clarke was formerly engaged to model Lara Bingle. During the Australian Cricket tour of New Zealand in March 2010, Clarke left the tour to return to Sydney for "personal reasons" after Bingle decided to sue her former lover Brendan Fevola for disseminating naked pictures of her, which ended up in a women's magazine. A couple of days later, it was reported that Clarke had ended his relationship and cancelled his wedding to Lara Bingle. Clarke's Management confirmed the couple had decided to terminate their engagement in a late night press conference on 12 March 2010.
