AUSTRALIAN cricket captain Michael Clarke spent Sunday in hospital suffering from gastroenteritis, Cricket Australia has confirmed.
Clarke, who returned early from Australia’s disastrous Test tour of India with a back complaint, was released from hospital on Monday.
“Cricket Australia (CA) today advised that Michael Clarke was hospitalised overnight with gastroenteritis,” the CA statement read.
“Clarke has since been discharged from hospital and CA confirms that he is recovering at home.”
Clarke is expected to spend the next 10 weeks recovering from his back problem and will miss the IPL to focus on being fit for the Champions Trophy and Ashes series in England. – AAP
