Michael Ian Coleridge Clarke (21 September 1913 – 10 November 1982) was a Barbadian cricketer. Clarke was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm fast-medium. He was born in Strathclyde in Saint Michael, Barbados.

A member of Spartan Cricket Club, Clarke played two matches for the Barbados national cricket team against Trinidad and Tobago in 1941.[1][2] In his debut first-class cricket match, he made a century—153, finally dismissed by Trinidad leg spin bowler Rupert Tang Choon.[3] His second match was played four days later and despite another creditable effort—42 runs in the first innings—he would never play for Barbados again.[2][4]
