9. 187 against England in 2013:
Clarke’s 187 in the 2013 Ashes was probably one of the few good memories for Australia on that tour. Australia batting first were down to two wickets after 82 runs and stepped in skipper Michael Clarke. Clarke got hold of the game and carried it forward to get Australia to a very good total of 527 runs. Clarke himself 187 runs before falling victim to Stuart Broad, in this brilliant innings Clarke hit 23 boundaries and they were a treat to watch. The match went on to be draw and Michael Clarke was awarded the man of the match award.
