Michael Clarke ruled out of Bupa Sheffield Shield final

Cricket Australia (CA) today advises that Michael Clarke has been ruled out of the Bupa Sheffield Shield final with a fractured shoulder.

Sheffield Shield Announcement“Michael Clarke was injured as a result of being struck on the left shoulder during the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town,” said Australian Team Physiotherapist Alex Kountouris.

“We have since done a series of scans that have demonstrated a fracture near his shoulder joint.

“We expect that this will heal with a period of rest.

“Michael is therefore unavailable for the Bupa Sheffield Shield final to be played later this week.”
