India vs Australia: Clarke, Pathan, Patel spring surprise comeback… but only on the scoreboard

Brisbane: Fans trouping in for the second India-Australia cricket one-dayer in Brisbane on Friday were in for a surprise when Michael Clarke's name showed up at the top of the home team's line-up on the Gabba's giant scoreboard.

As it turned out, there was no dramatic comeback for the talismanic batsman and former Australian captain who retired n 2015, and the display of his name was just an error which was soon rectified. The 34-year-old bid adieu to his international career last year after a string of poor results.

However, Clarke saw the light side of it saying, "Never say never' on Twitter.

Clarke was not the only absent players featured on the Gabba scoreboard. The Indian line-up had Pathan and Patel listed as well.
