Earlier, Clarke opted to chat following the his departure from cricket ,winning the The Oval Test by one innings and 46 runs. He talked about his determination to quit cricket with win, after losing the trophy at which he regained 18 months ago in Australia. He also hailed  his team members for giving him a successful send off.

“After the last Test, couldn’t have gone any better, the hard work the guys have put in. Credit to Alastair and his team, they’ve deserved the win but we’re glad to have come out in this match and put in a performance. We’re disappointed with how the series went but we came out and showed some of our best,” Clarke said.

“They used to boo me but I haven’t been scoring any runs. The fans are such a great part of playing this game. Probably my favourite tour was in 2005, it introduced me to how tough it is. I’ve had a wonderful time touring here, hopefully I can now come back and have a holiday.”

Clarke made his dream debut against India in Bangalore scoring 151 ended his 11 year old career. He had seen changes of the guards and ends of eras. He also recollected the how his senior mentored him to become great player.

“I came into a great Australian team. [In] my first 20 or 30 Test matches, those guys mentored me and hopefully I’ve managed to pass some of that on. Enjoy every single moment, I’m blessed to have played for Australia as much as I have, it’s an honour to captain your country. But this isn’t my stage, congratulations to Alastair and the England team.”
