Clarke becomes first batsman to complete 1,000 Test runs in this season

Australian captain Michael Clarke became the very first batsman overall to reach 1,000 runs in Tests in 2013 when he reached 139 against England in the 2nd Test in the ongoing Ashes 2013-14 Down Under in Adelaide. Clarke scored 148 from 245 balls, fantastic 17 fours.


From 11 games and 21 innings in 2013,  Clarke has slammed 4 hundreds and 3 half-centuries, recording a best of 187. Clarke was dismissed by Ben Stokes as he played a short length delivery on the leg and flicked it off his pads which however got a leading edge and safely landed in James Anderson‘s hands at mid-wicket.

Clarke has an average of 53.05. Rohit Sharma, who made his Test debut against West Indies last month, has the top average of 288.00 from 2 Tests. Rohit scored straight 2 100s against West Indies.
