Clarke has no problem playing under GangulyRoseau (Dominica): Australian captain is excited to make his IPL debut with Pune Warriors team and has no problem in doing so under former India skipper Sourav Ganguly, who is leading the side.

Clarke, who does not play international Twenty20s like Sachin Tendulkar, actually last played in the shortest format in October 2010.

Clarke had pulled out of the 2009 IPL auction when he preferred national duty over IPL. He then retired from Twenty20 internationals in January 2011 to focus on ODIs and Tests.

"The crowds look fantastic (at the IPL) and it`s going to be nice. To be honest with you, to be back playing some Twenty20 cricket, I`m looking forward to that. I`ve never been to the IPL," Clarke said after Australia`s win in the third Test against the West Indies.

"I think that Sourav`s always been a nice guy. I`ve always got along with him well and I look forward to playing under him. It seems like he`s doing a really good job as captain-coach over there, I`ve spoken to a couple of the boys and they seem to be really happy about how things are. So, yeah, for me it`s an eye-opener," the Aussie skipper added.

Clarke said it was just right time to get into the IPL.

"I`ve said for a long time that when the opportunity comes up and I feel that it`s right for me, I`d love to get over there and have a crack and see what it`s like.

"I am looking forward to it. We [Australia] have a good break this winter. I`ve only got two one-day tours the whole winter, so if I was ever going to go this is the opportunity."

At the time of signing Clarke, Warriors captain Ganguly had said the franchise were interested in Clarke, despite his lack of Twenty20 experience, since he has all-round ability.

"He can bat and he can bowl. He is a big player," Ganguly had said.
