Australian skipper Michael Clarke became the first batsman overall to reach 1,000 runs in Tests in 2013 when he reached 139 against England in the second Test in the ongoing Ashes 2013-14 Down Under at Adelaide.
Clarke scored 148 from 245 balls, smashing 17 fours.
From 11 matches and 21 innings in 2013, Clarke has slammed four tons and three half-centuries, recording a highest of 187.
Clarke was dismissed by Ben Stokes as he played a short length delivery on leg and flicked it off his pads which unfortunately got a leading edge and safely landed in James Anderson‘s hands at mid-wicket.
Clarke has an average of 53.05. Rohit Sharma, who made his Test debut against West Indies previous month, has the highest average of 288.00 from two Tests. Rohit scored consecutive two hundreds against West Indies.
