Australian cricket seems to be going through its darkest phase under the stewardship of Michael Clarke. With the prodigious batsman at the helm, Australia has witnessed one of its worst defeats ever and that too in a prestigious series like the Ashes. After having already lost three out of the five matches in the series so far, Australia seem to be reeling under the onslaught of the fiery England side. Clarke and his team are also facing a lot of criticism for such a poor performance. Due to the unfavourable turn of events, Clarke has announced that he will be retiring after the ongoing Ashes series.

Owing to the absence of the credible Birth Time, following predictions have been created, basis a Solar Horoscope/ Chart.
1) What are the planetary factors currently that have led to such a downturn in the cricketing career of the formidable Aussie skipper Michael Clarke?
2) How will the year ahead be for him?
- Ganesha notes that Michael Clarke is currently passing though a very tough time as a captain of the Australian team and as a player too. This severe adverse effect has been brought about by the transit of Ketu over the Stellium of planets, i.e. Sun, Mars and exalted Venus, posited in the 1st House of his Solar Chart. Rahu is transiting over retrograde Jupiter (in its detrimental Sign) and retrograde Saturn posited in the 7th House from the Sun in his Chart. This has made him weak against his opponents. His personal form too is in a slump. He has lost his stamina, strength, vigour, concentration, thinking power and confidence. His fame and popularity have taken a beating. The transit of Saturn through Scorpio, aspecting his Ketu posited in the 11th House has led to a sudden and unexpected downturn in his career. Jupiter's transit through Leo, aspecting his Mercury posited in the 12th House of his Chart too could not help him much.
3) When will he regain his lost form and will he be able to shine again in the future?
- Ganesha notes that Michael Clarke will continue to have a tough time as Rahu and Ketu will be transiting through his chart till January, 2016, and Saturn will be transiting till January 2017 through his Chart. Both these factors will have a negative influence on him. Jupiter will not be able to ameliorate his bad luck much. As such, he may not be able to perform satisfactorily as a captain or a player in the near future. The situation may turn marginally in his favour post 30th January, 2016.
Ganesha wishes good luck to Michael Clarke.
- Ganesha feels that Michael Clarke will be able to regain his lost form and surely be able to shine again. There are strong indications that he will regain his form, both as a captain and as a player. The transit of Jupiter through Virgo, post 11th August, 2016 will make this possible, provided he does not take an early retirement. The current transit of planets which are having a negative effect could prompt him to take this unhappy and hasty decision, feels Ganesha.
With Ganesha's Grace,
