Melbourne: Australia skipper Michael Clarke has reportedly asked a win against India as a Christmas gift from Santa.
In a report published in the Herald Sun, Clarke was appreciated for being 'selfless' this festive season and pray for collective glory rather than for personal ambitions. "All I want for Christmas is to beat India in this first Test match," he was overheard as jokingly telling a Santa Claus in his team hotel.
The 30-year-old batsman is believed to have sat on Santa's lap as he posed for fans in the hotel. "Yes, I've been a good boy," he said and added laughingly that he was not sure about David Warner, the other cricketer who was also present here with him.
