The sheer amount of ability and talent required to earn a baggy green is massive, the culmination of years of hard-work, disappointment, harder work and triumph. When Michael Clarke leads his charges onto the field in his baggy green in Perth, it will be the 100th time he has represented Australia in Test match cricket. On that day he will join some truly elite company, like his modern-day predecessors Ricky Ponting, Steve Waugh, Allan Border and Mark Taylor. So too will he join former teammates from Australia's golden era -- names like Warne, McGrath, Hayden and Langer, and those who set the foundations for that dominance, in Boon, Mark Waugh and Ian Healy, Australia's most capped gloveman. It is truly an all-star cast at the top end of Australian cricket, and while Clarke will be most reverent of his company, there is no doubt he deserves to be included in this upper echelon.
Celebrates Michael Clarke's 100th Test -- only the 12th Australian player to do so
