They have also agreed on a financial settlement and on arrangements to co-parent their four-year-old daughter Kelsey Lee.

“With the greatest of respect for each other, we’ve come to the mutual conclusion that this is the best course for us to take while committed to the co-parenting of our daughter.”

The divorce is reportedly worth approximately $40 million.

The former Australia cricketer who played 115 Tests and 245 one-day internationals for Australia, scoring over 17,000 runs at international level, moved out of his home with Kyly in Vaucluse five months ago, relocating to the $7 million Bondi apartment they owned together.

Earlier Kyly had speculation about their marriage, claiming that they would never be split. “We’re not, never were and never will be splitting.”

It is understood Kyly will continue to occupy the Vaucluse property with their daughter Kelsey Lee, aged 4.

Clarke and Kyly, both 38, had tied the knots in 2012, after dating for 18 months. Their daughter, Kelsey, was born in 2015.

In a recent Instagram post, Clarke told his daughter Kelsey that he was “right beside you”.
