Clarke shows his thoughtful side


Australia captain Michael Clarke showed his thoughtful side recently, when he came to know of the tragedy facing young Harry Rowe and his family. Harry’s father, 36-year-old Andrew, died a few weeks ago of a heart attack, prompting friends to organise a tribute night. Clarke, it was reported in the Sydney Morning Herald, hearing of the event from a friend, asked what he could do to help. An autographed cap for Harry was requested. Soon enough, Harry got his cap, as well as a phone call from the Australia captain.
