Former Australian captain Michael Clarke's contract with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 was allegedly canceled after an explosive social spat with his girlfriend. Now, several reports suggest that Clarke has been offered a commentary gig by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for the upcoming season of Pakistan Super League 2023, starting February 13.
The four-Test series between India and Australia begin from February 9.
With the alleged removal by the BCCI, Clarke losses out on the AUD 150,000 contract for doing commentary. As per The Sydney Morning Herald, former Australian player Mark Waugh is set to accompany Matthew Hayden and Mitchell Johnson as commentators for the tour.
As per News18, Clarke confirmed receiving an invitation from PCB.
Here's what Clarke said
“I have just been asked to commentate on the PSL, the Pakistan Premier League, and you should see the internationals they have got,”
The 41-year-old represented Australia in 115 Tests, 245 ODIs, and 34 T20Is, amassing 17,112 runs combined.
In the said viral clip, Clarke has denied all allegations put against him by his girlfriend Jade Yarbrough about having an affair with his ex Pip Edwards.
