Former Australia skipper Michael Clarke loves his Indian cuisine and interestingly he doesn't mind to binge on spicy dishes the sub-continent has on offer.

"I love my biryani and garlic naan. I don't mind the spices. It's alright if I sweat, but I can deal with it. Every time I come to India, I know I am going to get some great food," Clarke said during an event in the city yesterday.

Clarke, 36, fondly called Pup by his teammates, also revealed that the strangest delicacy he ate was a crocodile. "I liked it," he guffawed.

Asked which profession he would consider if not for cricket, Clarke said: "If it weren't for cricket, I would have been a Formula One racer. I love my cars and bikes. I drove in Kolkata, but not in Mumbai."
