Born in Liverpool, New South Wales, Australia, Clarke entered the world of cricket at a very young age. He played for his team of New South Wales when he was 18, which gained him recognition and a scholarship to the Australian Cricket Academy from 1999 to 2000.

Clarke’s international career started in 2003 when he debuted in a ODI against England at Adelaide, and the following year he also made his Test debut for Australia, against India. The early years of his career helped start his journey in cricket, and also his net worth.

After his success in his Test debut against India in 2004, he was awarded the Allan Border Medal in 2005 and never looked back. Some of Clarke’s career highlights included helping the Australian team retain the 2007 Cricket World Cup, then the following year he was made vice-captain of the Australian side when Adam Gilchrist resigned from the post, followed in 2009 by being named the captain of Australia’s Twenty20 side, taking over after Ricky Ponting’s retirement. He also became a stand-in captain for the Ashes series in 2010-2011 to assist Ponting.

In 2012, Clarke made a career milestone when he scored a double century at the Adelaide Oval, becoming the only Test batsman to make four double centuries in a calendar year, gaining him the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy, the Cricketer of the Year award, and the Test Cricketer of the Year for 2013. That same year, he also gained his fourth Allan Border Medal in Australian cricket, after winning it in 2005, 2009, and 2012.

In 2015, as captain of the Australian team Clarke led his men at the 2015 Cricket World Cup, taking home the trophy for the fifth time. After 2015, he decided to retire from all forms of cricket. His success in the sport certainly elevated his career and also his wealth.
