Michael Clarke – ‘Pup’ or “Clarkey” is the captain of the Australian cricket team. His domination since taking the reins of the Australian Test team sets him amongst the game’s most prominent men as a highly regarded ambassador for his country and the sport of cricket. He has been an ambassador for MILO since 2007 and has played a key role in developing the next generation of Aussie cricketers and helping kids get active.
Since bursting onto the Australian cricket scene in 2003 at the age of 21, Michael has made a name for himself as a prolific run scorer against the world’s best bowling attacks, a master tactician on the field and a leader of a young national cricket team rebuilding after a series of high profile retirements.
Michael has been a MILO ambassador since 2007 and a MILO fan for much longer. The MILO cricket programs have been a huge part of his career – the first time he ever stepped onto the SCG was while wearing a MILO in2CRICKET uniform. Being so passionate about growing cricket, the MILO programs are Michael’s chance to give back to community and see the next generation of Aussie cricketers step up for their chance to shine.
Michael also has his roots firmly grounded in suburban Sydney. Having grown up in Liverpool in the city’s south-western suburbs, Michael is a keen supporter of the West Tigers and still plays grade cricket for Western Suburbs.
