London: Australia's One-day International batsman Michael Clarke will join compatriot Shane Warne at Hampshire next season on a one-year contract. Clarke will team up with spinner Warne as the second overseas player at the Rose Bowl. The 22-year-old has made a promising start to his career and Hampshire are thrilled to land the starlet. "We are naturally delighted that Michael has agreed to be our overseas player next season," Hampshire chairman Rod Bransgrove said. "He is undoubtedly one of the brightest new stars of international cricket, and we are certain that his considerable playing style will prove highly popular at The Rose Bowl."
