Cricket was the only passion for former Australian skipper Michael Clarke as a growing up kid. Years of rigorous cricket and a successful career later, Clarke seems to be at his romantic best.

A report in mid-day also mentions that Clarke, who was only interested in cricket, now regrets not completing his graduation. He left school in Year XI in 1999 to focus on cricket. ALSO READ: When a schoolteacher told David Warner, “When you grow up, you will be good at nothing”

“If I had my time again or for our daughter, I will definitely be pushing her to graduate and finish year 12. There is no better achievement or feeling than when you do start something to actually finish it.

And no matter what you do in life, you do need education and I was very blind to that when I was young.

All I thought about was cricket and that meant bat, bowl, field, and there is a lot more to it than that,” added the 35-year-old Aussie great.
