Profile

Promoted too early and written off too soon, Rikki Clarke is a prodigiously talented all-round cricketer who belatedly found the temperament to compliment his talent. The words' potential' and 'unfulfilled' occur as frequently in articles about Clarke as long-hops used to in his overs. And that's quite frequently. But, after many frustrations, Clarke started to fulfil his extravagant gifts at his third county and blossomed into the fine all-rounder his ability always suggested he could become.
