Michael Clarke’s IPL 6 participation in doubt

March 26, 2013

IPL 6 Michael Clarke

Michael Clarke missed the Delhi Test after he was ruled due to a sore back. The injury seems to be a serious one as the Aussie skipper on all probability is going to miss the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League as well. The player’s participation in the IPL largely depends on the advice from his medical experts.

Michael Clarke is a key player for Pune Warriors team in the IPL and his absence in the team is going to hurt the Pune side badly. His experience will be wanted by the Pune team management in the IPL along with his current form, which has helped him score consistent runs. Pune Warriors brought the player for USD 400,000 and were looking for a good IPL this season after they brought in some other good players namely Michael Clarke, Abhishek Nayar, Ajantha Mendis, Kane Richardson during the last auction. But if Clarke decides to pull out, it could be a huge loss to Pune Warriors.

Yuvraj Singh is the present captain of the Pune Warriors. But, as reported by Fox Sports, the elegant left-hander does not want to lead the side, so the team management are keen on Clarke as captain. They are ready to shell out more money so as to convince the player to participate in the upcoming IPL staring April 3. But will money lure the player to play in the lucrative competition such as IPL? What if Clarke does not agree? They need to find another skipper or force Yuvraj to lead the side.

History does not hold a great piece of news for Pune Warriors, as Clarke made his IPL debut only in the last edition (2012). Had he been after money, he could have easily got a huge sum of money when a number of IPL franchises were interested to sign the player in the past IPL auctions. But, he kept his nation’s interest ahead of the competition like IPL.
