Melbourne, Mar.26 : Australian cricketer Michael Clarke has reportedly arranged a lavish surprise engagement party for his fiancee Lara Bingle at the Luna Park next week.

The no-expense-spared affair, to be held on April 4, will be cocktail-themed and is Clarke's surprise gift to his bride-to-be and her thrilled family.
News of the loved-up pair's expected engagement filtered through Sydney late Monday, but the blonde duo, still holidaying in New York, were keeping the details to themselves till yesterday.
Bingle's mum Sharon was similarly ecstatic yesterday, saying she thought the news was "absolutely wonderful" We're all very happy about it - Michael is a lovely and romantic man," she said.
"I'm dying to see Lara and congratulate both of them. We're very proud."
