Report: Michael Clarke considering cricket comeback

BY foxsports • January 30, 2016

SYDNEY (AP) Former Australia captain Michael Clarke is reportedly considering a return to first-class cricket and won't rule out an international comeback, telling Australia's News Corp. on Sunday ''I'll never say never to anything.''

The 34-year-old Clarke retired after the Ashes defeat last August, and after a series of personal setbacks. He battled a back injury which affected his form, fell out with the Australia selectors and administration, and stuggled with the accidental death of his close friend and teammate Phil Hughes.

Clarke told News Corp. he will likely return to cricket in a Sydney club match between Western Suburbs and Randwick-Petersham on Feb. 20. He said his break from cricket had allowed him to recover from his back injury and reminded him cricket is ''in my blood.''
