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.
Never say never.. Hahaha. Love the GABBA https://t.co/dRdq8s4S11

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