Michael Clarke, the Australian Test captain, who retired from One-Day International (ODIs) after the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, is all set to make his Big Bash League (BBL) debut. The Melbourne Stars has signed him and it is being learnt Clarke is all set to lead the team, Herald Sun reported.

Since the 2012 Indian Premier League (IPL), where he represented Pune Warriors in few games, Clarke hasn’t played any T20 game. In the 2012-13 BBL season, he was on Sydney Thunder’s list but stepped down after failing to play a match due to his hectic international schedule. For the upcoming season, Australia’s latest World Cup winning skipper was Stars’ No.1 target. Clarke has played 34 Twenty20 internationals with an average of 37.5 and averages 41 at lower-level matches.
