Former Australia cricket captain Michael Clarke played his first competitive match since retiring last year and survived two chances and a near runout before scoring 48 runs in a Sydney grade match. (Michael Clarke Returns to Club Cricket, Eyes Good Show in Twenty20s)
Clarke, playing in front of around 500 people for Western Suburbs against Randwick-Petersham at a small inner-city oval, was dropped at second slip before scoring and was almost run out on returning for the second run. He was later dropped again at second slip when on 30.
The 34-year-old Clarke retired after the Ashes defeat last August.
He has been linked with a number of Twenty20 competitions and has refused to rule out a comeback to international cricket.
