Clarke is looking to gain some form ahead of the South Africa series
Australia Test captain Michael Clarke has revealed that he does not miss playing Twenty20 cricket for his country one bit, and added that he was always more content playing Test cricket instead.
Clarke, who retired from Twenty20 cricket in January last year, has been captaining the New South Wales team in the Sheffield Shield tournament throughout the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Twenty20, and he stated that playing domestic cricket would help him get some form back ahead of the upcoming home series against South Africa in November.
Clarke also noted that he had been in touch with his team-mates throughout their time in the World Twenty20.
The Age quoted Clarke as saying: “I’m happily retired in that form of the game for Australia. I’m on the phone to a lot of them just about every day, and the coach Mickey Arthur.”
Clarke added that he was focused on doing his job for New South Wales.
“But I had my time in Twenty20 cricket for Australia and I’m enjoying playing for NSW and facing a red ball at the moment,” he said.
Clarke recently guided New South Wales to an eight-wicket win against Western Australia at the Western Australia Cricket Ground (WACA).
