Australian captain Michael Clarke was taken to hospital on Sunday following a bout of gastroenteritis.

Cricket Australia confirmed Clarke spent Sunday night in a Sydney hospital but was released on Monday.

A statement from the body read: "Cricket Australia today advised Michael Clarke was hospitalised overnight with gastroenteritis.

"Clarke has since been discharged from hospital and CA confirms he is recovering at home."

The 31-year-old returned to Australia from India nine days ago after breaking down with a back injury which will see him sidelined for seven to 10 weeks.
