Percept Talent & #BANNER1 & # Management (PTM), the recently launched outfit of Percept Holdings, has signed on Australian all-rounder Michael J Clarke as its latest talent. Clarke burst on to the international cricket scene in 2003, making his ODI debut against England. Known to be a feisty, confident player, very effective against spin bowling, Clarke has made the most of his opportunities in the middle order.

Clarke is already being talked of in Australian cricket circles as a successor to Ricky Ponting as the future captain of Team Australia. Having leveraged talents from the sports and Bollywood fraternity in India, PTM has now set its sights on the international front, beginning with Clarke.

"For us, it's the talent that counts. The country or domain that the person may be in is secondary," says Vinita Bangard, COO, PTM. "Clarke is Australia's upcoming star of the future. He has already displayed his prowess to the cricketing world; enough to show that he is here to stay."

For the record, Percept Talent Management marks a confluence between creating, inculcating, honing and promoting talent. It aims to provide 360-degree solutions for talented and famous individuals from the field of entertainment, including films, music, sports, fashion, direction, writing, modelling and acting.

PTM is a 50:50 joint venture between Percept Holdings and Lachlan Murdoch's Illyria Pty Ltd (Australia).
