The one applauding Clarkey to the heights

I ADMIT to being one of those cynical types who thought Michael Clarke's career was finished back in 2010 - about the time when he left the New Zealand tour to liberate himself of then fiancée Lara Bingle.

Fair enough, after years of world domination, Clarke's Test average and the Australian team in general were on the wane.

This low point, however, turned out to be the start of something good - both for Pup and the rest of his team.

They say that behind every great man there is a great woman, and didn't Channel Nine make sure we got that message while Clarke was out belting the South African bowlers around on Thursday?

I think I counted at least a dozen flashes of Kyly Clarke (nee Boldy) while her husband was in the nervous 90s and the nervous 190s.

What better motivation for a man to go out and score a thousand runs?
