Michael Clarke has come along way from the tinted tipped, model dating, smart-arse upstart who would become king. A 329 not out and a 210 against India last summer went a long way establishing Pup’s reputation as a courageous captain but we can’t help but think what Simon Katich would make of Clarkie’s latest partnership with Louis Vuitton?
Maybe this signals a new direction for the game? Can you see Louis Vuitton finding a place alongside these enduring cricketing icons?
It doesn’t quite sit well with us yet but if you’ve just been dying to combine your love of high-end fashion and passion for the great game, than Clarkie’s travel trunk should only set you back $175,000 through Christie’s via private action. To be fair, all proceeds will go to Sydney Children’s Hospital and the trunk will come with all memorabilia on display, minus Pup’s baggy green and team blazer. Someone is going to look pretty sharp at their next nets session.
