Michael Clarke breaks Don Bradman's record

"Clarke has become the first player to score four double centuries in a year. I should mention here that I can only imagine Bradman playing any better than how he (Clarke) is playing, Waugh said.

Waugh, was all praise for Clarke as he termed his achievement as incredible as he had scored a double ton in the first Test match against South Africa at Gabba as well.

Moreover, he is leading the side which is an added responsibility, but Waugh said that the Aussie captain looked quite relaxed throughout.

"He seems to be so relaxed in the crease with head still. Clarke has done incredibly as a captain," he added.

Michael Clarke, became the first cricketer to score four double tons in a year, after surpassing Ricky Ponting and Sir Don Bradman's record of three double tons in a year.
