Michael Clarke partners with ICC World Cup 2015 official timekeeper

Australian skipper Michael Clarke, who is currently healing his hamstring injury, has partnered with Swiss watch brand Hublot, who are the official timekeeper of the ICC World Cup 2015.

Clarke’s career has been plagued with injuries and he is expected to make a comeback for the first Test against India at Brisbane. With middle-order batsman Steven Smith also injured and his participation in doubt for the Brisbane Test, Cricket Australia (CA) wanted skipper Clarke to prove his fitness in a two-day tour match against India at Adelaide starting this Friday.

However, the reluctant Clarke wanted more rest and it seems that’s the way it will be. Clarke was quoted by Fox Sports, “At this stage I’ve been ruled out of the two-day game in Adelaide, the practice game. The medical staff ruled me out today.

So my goal is to get back on the park as soon as I’m fully fit to do that, so I’m just going to take it one step at a time. The next game, if I’m available, is club cricket.”
