Clarke's 300 Runs Against India 2nd Test Match

Australian caption Michael Clarke played 329 runs knock created history in SCG. He was the first man to score triple century in Sydney Cricket Ground. His partnership with Mike Hussy took Australia 468 runs lead as result very strong position in the game. Hussy scored over 150 runs and became the third centurion in Australia's innings after Caption Michael Clark and Ricky Ponting.

Clarke was batting on 251 along with Mike Hussey (55) and Australia seemed to have batted India. Pressure on India now to perform well in this situation. A declaration could also be on Clarke's mind, but with more than half the Test still remaining, time is on his side.

Clarke was slow out of the blocks on day three, taking his time to get set once again, but by lunch he had played a few excellent strokes, including a drive through extra cover for four to go past Foster's record.

Australia have declared! Take a bow, Michael Clarke! He is batting on 329, and a 400 was surely on but he preferred to declare.
ustralia still went past 500 runs in the first hour, a feat they had done nearly 22 months and 17 Tests ago against New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton in March 2010.
