With a successful tour of the West Indies completed, Australia captain Michael Clarke has now shifted his focus to what will be his first stint at the IPL.
Clarke is expected to arrive in India on April 30, to join his franchise, Pune Warriors. This will be something of a Twenty20 return for Clarke, who last played in the shortest format in October 2010.
In 2009, Clarke had pulled out of the IPL auction, citing Australia's busy schedule.
He then retired from Twenty20 internationals in January 2011 in order to focus on ODIs and Tests.
