Sydney: Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke seems unfazed by the criticism coming his way for not inviting his teammates to his surprise wedding to Kyly Boldy.
Having been projected as a loner earlier and a person who put himself before others, Clarke over a period of time has undergone significant image changes that would now convince people that he is not all for himself.
According to a leading Australian daily, Clarke could have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars by selling his wedding to a women’s magazine or a television station.
He could have paraded his high-profile guests, but he chose to get married on the quiet.
Those close to Clarke say he decided to invite ‘‘family and those who he considers family’’.
Clarke has been through some tough personal times in recent weeks dealing with the loss of his grandmother. Her influence on his life is only known by those closest to him, but it’s fair to say it made his wedding an even more emotional affair.
As for not inviting his teammates to the wedding, Clarke is said to have wanted to keep it tight.
