Profile

The tall and lanky fast bowler from New South Wales has often been compared to the legendary Glenn McGrath for the accuracy in line and length that he brings in. Stuart Clark first came into limelight after his Man-of-the-Series performance in South Africa in a dream debut in 2006, bagging 20 wickets at 15.75.

Clark makes good use of his height and has the potential to generate bounce from any wicket. His nagging accuracy and consistency help him fetch wickets at regular intervals. ‘Sarfraz’ as he is nicknamed, cemented his place in the Test squad after being named the Bowler of the Series in Australia's 5-0 drubbing of England in the Ashes series that followed.

Despite his superb Test performance, Clark failed to prove his worth in ODI cricket. The Sydney-born cricketer failed to maintain the same consistency with the ball in Tests as in the limited version of the game. The slight-built seamer announced his retirement from International cricket in 2011 as he wanted to shift his attention to mentoring and coaching activities.
