Michael Clarke became just the fifth Australian to score a triple century against India at the SCG in 2012.
Coming to the crease with Australia in trouble at 3/37 in reply to the Indians first innings score of 191, Clarke played an almost flawless knock, sharing in a 288-stand with Ricky Ponting before piling on a 334-run partnership with Michael Hussey.
The then Australian skipper plundered 39 boundaries and one six before declaring Australia’s innings at 4/659 with Clarke unbeaten on 329*.
It was right-hander’s 10th century in Australia, fourth as captain and second at the SCG.
Clarke’s sits third on the highest Test scores by an Australian behind Matthew Hayden (380), Mark Taylor (334) and Don Bradman (334).
