No Bash for Pup


MICHAEL Clarke will pull out of his Big Bash League deal with the Mel­bourne Stars, mean­ing Aus­tralian crowds might have seen the bat­ting great in ac­tion for the last time.

The re­cently re­tired Aussie skip­per was weigh­ing up whether to play in Twenty20 com­pe­ti­tions like the BBL and IPL, or step away from the game al­to­gether.

Clarke has been hol­i­day­ing with wife Kyly in Europe and has de­cided to take at the very least, an ex­tended break, with the cou­ple ex­pect­ing their first baby in Jan­uary.

Clarke had been lured to the Stars on a two-year deal.
