2010-11 was a rollercoaster ride for Michael Clarke.

The season began with victories over Pakistan and New Zealand and ended with losses to India in India and the Ashes at home. To cap it off, Clarke made his debut as Test captain in the final match of the Vodafone Ashes series at the SCG, becoming Australia’s 43rd long-form leader.

Clarke has taken over the reins in both Test and one-day cricket following the ICC World Cup, where Australia bowed out in the quarter-finals.

The Australian team has a tough season ahead and Clarke will need to manage not only his men but his own form in order to have success against Sri Lanka and South Africa away for a tough summer at home and then a tour to the West Indies early next year.

Clarke is more focused than ever to perform for Australia, undergoing a gruelling 11 day personal training camp in Coffs Harbour to get his mind and body right for the long season ahead.
