Michael Clarke Makes Unfeigned Appeal After Getting Skin Cancer Removed, Shares Picture

New Delhi: Michael Clarke, who was diagnosed with three non-melanoma lesions in 2006, got a skin cancer removed from his forehead recently. The former Australia captain shared a picture on Instagram after the surgery. In the pictures the stitches on his forehead can be seen clearly.

Clarke, through the picture, appealed youngsters to take care of the skin and protect it from the sun. "Another day, another skin cancer cut out of my face... youngsters out there make sure you are doing all the right things to protect yourself from the sun," read the caption.

 

Among the many who commented on Clarke's post were Australian swimmer Grant Hackett and Pakistan cricketer Ahmad Shahzad.

"You have made me book an appointment bro! @michaelclarkeofficial," Hackett wrote.

While Shahzad wrote, "Legend".

According to a report in 7news.com.au, after being diagnosed with skin cancer in 2006, Clarke became an ambassador for the Cancer Council in 2010.

Clarke was Australia's 43rd Test captain. He replaced Ricky Ponting as Australia's captain in 2011. The 38 year old is fourth-highest Test run-scorer.

In his 12-year-long international career, Clarke made 115 Tests, 245 One-Day Internationals (ODI) and 34 Twenty20 International (T20I) appearances.

He retired from international cricket after the Ashes series in 2015.

Former Australia Test captain Ian Chappell, two months ago, had revealed that he is battling skin cancer.
