Michael Clarke drives auto rickshaw ahead of India-Australia Test in Bengaluru

India and Australia will clash with each other at Bengaluru's iconic M Chinnaswamy Stadium in the second Test match, starting Saturday (March 4).

If both the teams are busy preparing for the upcoming Test, Clarke too did something productive during his stay in Bengaluru. He too utilised the time to master the art of driving on Indian roads.

The former Australia world cup winning skipper has posted a video on his Instagram account, in which he could be seen driving an auto-rickshaw.

The 35-year-old first learnt the technique of driving the auto rickshaw, also known as 'tuk-tuk', and later was seen driving like a pro.

"Mastered the art of driving the tuk tuk. Nice to be back in Bengaluru where it all started," wrote Clarke with video.

Earlier, he also tweeted an image with India skipper Virat Kohli.

"Always great to catch up with @imVkohli. Good to see you buddy," wrote Clarke on his Twitter handle.

Clarke has deep connection with M Chinnaswamy Stadium for it was this very ground where he made his Test debut in 2004 and slammed a ton.

Clarke scored 151 in the game that Australia won by 217 runs. The debutant was awarded the Man of the Match for his brilliant performance.
