The Australian cricket team is made up of more than just the eleven players who take the field. The Aussie fans that cheer us on from the stands are also a vital part of the team, their energy lifts us when we are down and keeps us focused when we are going well, commented Michael Clarke.

ASICS will also be the official footwear and apparel sponsor of the Australian Cricket Centre of Excellence, where Australia's next generation of international cricketers hone their craft before taking on the world.
