Clarke to play HK T20
Former Australia captain Michael Clarke will headline Hong Kong's Twenty20 Blitz this month as he pursues a comeback in cricket's shortest form.
Clarke, affectionately known as Pup, will star at the four-team tournament from May 28-29 in a rare appearance since his retirement.
"While I have never been to Hong Kong before, I have heard so much about what a great place it is for sport," he said in a statement from organisers on Wednesday.
"I can't wait to meet my teammates and experience the city, while also hopefully contributing to cricket in Hong Kong which I know has been coming on leaps and bounds in recent years."
Injury-plagued Clarke, 35, retired last August.
Clarke returned to action in a Sydney club game in February, and he has also held talks with the Sydney Sixers about playing in Australia's Twenty20 Big Bash League.
Organisers said they were delighted to welcome Clarke to the T20 Blitz.
