Post retirement, Michael Clarke contemplating another shot at IPL

New Delhi: Indian Premier League (IPL) is a tournament which can lure the best of cricketers to participate in it and Australia's retiring skipper Michael Clarke is no different.

Clarke, who regularly turned down IPL offers during his career to focus on international cricket, has now said that playing in the cash-rich tournament could be an option for him.

"That's (IPL) probably one of the things I've got to think about over the next week or so. What I'm going to do there, am I going to look at that as an option? I'll spend the next few days trying to sum that up. See where my mind is at, see where my body is at and have a good think about it. Kyly (wife) and I are going to go away for a week or so before I fly back home. And that's just going to give me some time to have a think about what I'm going to do when I get home," Clarke was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

The 34-year-old was struggling with the bat in the last one year as a result of which he retired from international cricket after England won 3-2 in the Ashes 2015.

Clarke is yet to prove his mettle in IPL as he scored just 98 runs in six outings when he played for the defunct side Pune Warriors India in 2012.

In T20Is, Pup has scored 488 runs at an average of 21, 67 being his highest score.

The right-hander will continue to play in the Big Bash League as the skipper of the Melbourne Stars after signing a new two-year contract in April.
