Michael Clarke comeback: Indian Premier League, BBL on ex-Aussie skipper's radar

New Delhi: Six months after announcing his retirement from international cricket, former Australian skipper Michael Clarke is now is set to return to first-class cricket with the cash-rich leagues like IPL and BBL on his radar.

In his first competitive game on return, the 34-year-old will play for grade team Western Suburbs against Randwick-Petersham in a Sydney club match on February 20-21.

"I'll start with playing this grade game for Western Suburbs and see if I miss it as much as I feel like I'm going to. If I do, the option is there to train the entire winter and then we'll see what happens," Clarke told 'News Corp'.

Pup also expressed his desire to play in next year's Big Bash League, Indian Premier League and county cricket.

"There's BBL next summer, I'd love to be a part of that, IPL, county cricket. There's possibly even Sheffield Shield cricket for NSW. All I know is, I'll never say never to anything," he further added.

Clarke hung up the boots after a tumultuous final 18 months as Test captain, during which time he struggled for form and fitness, fell out with Australian selectors and buried his close friend Phillip Hughes who died in a freak accident in November 2014.
