Profile

Having burst onto the international scene as a 23-year-old with a century on Test debut, the man known as 'Pup' has matured into the top dog of Australian cricket.

Clarke's batting has reached record-breaking levels since taking over as captain, and the summer of 2013-14 saw him lead his side back to the summit of Test cricket.

Imaginative and attacking captaincy has been an impressive feature of Clarke's reign as skipper, and his leadership qualities were there for all to see during Australia's Ashes whitewash and series victory in South Africa.

That famous win against the Proteas also included arguably Clarke’s greatest performance as a batsman. The skipper finished unbeaten on 161 at Newlands after bravely surviving a brutal spell from Morne Morkel, with scans later revealing he had played most of the innings with a fractured shoulder.

Having been harshly targeted by some fans when victories were hard to come by, Clarke has successfully turned the tide of public opinion in his favour.
