Clark took 28 wickets for the series, which was still the record for the most wickets taken in a series without taking 5 wickets in an innings until overtaken by Pat Cummins in the 2019 Ashes series in England. Wisden later reported that Clark "bowled an excellent line and length, even though called upon to do a lot of work. He invariably broke through with the new ball and had a splendid record of dismissing Gavaskar, the principal danger to the Australians."
There were press reports about the legitimacy of Clark's action. "I don't know that all the fuss is about", said Indian captain Bishen Bedi. "None of our officials or players have said they consider Clark throws the ball — it's something that has been blown up by the Press".
Clark had a strong second Test, taking 2–95 and 2–83 (Gavaskar in both innings) with useful scores with the bat of 15 and 5 not out – the latter was important as he and Thomson chased down the 12 runs to win with two wickets in hand. He kept his place for the next two tests.
In the third Test Clark took 4–73 and 4–96, but Australia's batting was not as strong an India won by 222 runs (Clark's second innings score of 33 was Australia's second highest). He took 2–66 in the fourth Test, but India won by an innings and 2 runs. He suffered a bad back injury that saw him miss a Shield game. He recovered to play a Gillette Game against NSW, taking 4–20 off 7.2 overs and winning the man of the match award.
Australia fought back to win the 5th test. It was a difficult game for Australia's bowlers as Thomson broke down early in India's first innings. Clark took 4–62 and 2–79.
In the first test he took 0–41. The second 2–77 with reports saying he "bowled gallantly without luck." The third he got 4–65 and 4–124, helping set up Australia's sole test victory.
In a game against Windward Islands, Clark took a career best 12–70.
The fourth test he got 3–65 and 2–62 but Australia collapsed in the second innings and lost the game. Clark was dogged by back trouble. He was rested for the game against Jamaica.
His form improved later in the summer taking 6–47 against South Australia, 5–54 against Victoria and 6–39 against Queensland. He managed to get back in the team for the first test against Pakistan when Trevor Laughlin was injured.
Clark took 1–56 and 0–47 in an Australian defeat. He was dropped for the second test in favour of Laughlin. He took 35 first class wickets at 30.25 over the summer. He was overlooked for the 1979 World Cup and tour of India.
In 2010, Clark joined Perth radio station 91.3 SportFM's 'Sports Breakfast' team alongside Corbin Middlemas, as well as continuing his expert commentary for their Sheffield Shield broadcasts.
Clark was the coach of the Western Warriors. In January 2007, it was announced that Clark would step down from his role as Western Australian coach, a role he has had for ten seasons over two stints. He has guided Western Australia to two Pura Cups and 3 One Day Domestic championships in his tenure as coach.
He was also the coach of Yorkshire from 2001–2002 where he led them to their first County Championship title for 33 years in 2001. The following season were relegated from division one but still managed to win the C & G Trophy, a first Lord's final win since 1987. Yorkshire decided to restructure the coaching staff and Clark was offered the position of Bowling Coach for the 2003 season but declined and left the club at the end of 2002.
Clark was not selected for the WA team at the start of the 1979–80 summer. However he forced his way back into the team and was part of Western Australia's Sheffield Shield winning sides in 1980–81 and 1983–84; he captained the side in some games. His best season was in 1982–83 when he took 31 wickets at 25.83.
His work earned him selection on the 1978 tour of the West Indies.
England toured Australia for the 1978–79 summer. At the beginning of the season English captain Mike Brearley said he expected Clark to be one of the players to give his team the most trouble. However Clark began the domestic season slowly and was replaced by Alan Hurst, Rodney Hogg and Geoff Dymock.
Clark took eight wickets in the first two games of the 1977–78 summer at 32.63 and was rewarded by selection in the Australian side against India for the first Test. The bowling attack consisted of Clark, Jeff Thomson, Alan Hurst and Tony Mann. Clark had an excellent game, taking 4–46 in the first innings (including the wickets of Sunil Gavaskar and Mohinder Amarnath) and 4–101 in the second (including Gavaskar again and Dilip Vengsarkar). His second innings knock of 12, including a 31 run partnership with Jeff Thomson, proved unexpectedly crucial as Australia won by 16 runs.
Clark made his first class debut in 1974–75 and replaced Mick Malone for a game in 1975–76. However he was not a regular member of the West Australian team until 1976–77 when he took 25 wickets at 26.96.
