Clarke to miss IPL 6







Pin It



Australian captain Michael Clarke has been ruled out of IPL season 6, as he has been advised to take rest for at least seven weeks under the rehabilitation programe for his chronic back injury.

Clarke, who was bought by Pune Warriors for whoppy $4,00,000 in the IPL auctions early this year, underwent scans for his back and hamstring problems soon after he arrived home from India where his side suffered a humiliating 0-4 Test series whitewash.

Clarke missed the fourth and final Test against India in New Delhi, which Australia lost inside three days.

Michael Clarke had scans that confirmed his current lower back injury is an exacerbation of previous issues he has had with his spine. Michael is having intensive rehabilitation for both his back and hamstring but is still 7 to 10 weeks away from returning to training and playing.

This is a huge loss to Pune Warriors India. Michael Clarke was to lead the side this season.

All the best Pune Warriors. We will miss you Clarke!!
