Authors: Michael Clarke
Just like playing cricket, writing a book is a team effort. Thanks to the Macmillan crew who have been exceptionally professional, and to Jim for helping me pull all the elements of the diary together.
Big shout out also to my teammates – a great and talented bunch of guys and a pleasure to captain.
Finally, thanks to my wife, Kyly, who puts up with the life of a professional sportsman with grace and good humour.
About Michael Clarke
Michael ‘Pup’ Clarke grew up in Liverpool, in Sydney’s south west. He joined the New South Wales Sheffield Shield team at eighteen and made his international test debut only three years later, in 2004. He became the 43rd captain of the Australian cricket team in 2011. Michael has notched up 24 centuries from only 97 matches. He has also won the prestigious Allan Border Medal several times: in 2005, 2009, 2012 and again in 2013.
