Michael Clarke voted world's best cricketer in 2013

13 December 2013, 12:01

Perth - Australia skipper Michael Clarke has collected the International Cricket Council's best player award for 2013 on the day he started his 100th test.

Clarke was the leading run scorer in tests in the qualifying period in the 12 months to Aug. 25, scoring 1,559 runs at an average of 70.86 including five centuries.

Clarke, who was playing the third Ashes test against England on Friday, says "I definitely didn't expect to have won this award but it is a prestigious award and an honor, and something I'm certainly proud of."

Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara was voted the ICC's limited-overs international cricketer of the year and India's Cheteshwar Pujara was named as the Emerging Cricketer of the Year.
