Ex-Test captain Clarke scolds journalist

Ex-Test captain Clarke scolds journalist

Clarke's post had six facts of him when he was skipper, accusing him of "attacking" his leadership, integrity and his opinion that Australia needed to play tough but fair cricket. Because whether we like it or not, that's in our blood.

Kohli, who scored an unbeaten 61 in India's win in Sydney on Sunday to tie the three-match Twenty20 series, also signalled his rich vein of form with a 64 off 87 balls.

There is nothing wrong with anybody advocating tough cricket and earning the respect of the opposition - and everyone else.

The limited-overs captain Aaron Finch had spoken recently about the distinction between playing "hard cricket" for an opposition to cope with and falling into the "easy" trap of trying to put opponents off their games verbally. Does not mean taking sandpaper onto a cricket field is fine. He also said many "respected journalists and seniors within the Australian cricket team" had reached out in support of his view on the national set-up's ethos.

"Their in-your-face style is their strength and should not be sacrificed", de Plessis said. Unapologetically passionate about indie music and the South Australian Redbacks, Daniel's chief cricketing achievement was to dismiss Wisden Almanack editor Lawrence Booth in the 2010 Ashes press match in Perth - a rare Australian victory that summer.

At issue was the spirit in which Australian cricket should be played.

"It is a reflection of the balance of power if Virat says that - you've got a lot of people who will listen", explained Gower, who said the introduction of a World Test Championship from next year will help provide greater context for matches.

Hours later, Clarke tweeted that Whateley was "nothing more than headline chasing coward" among other things.

Clarke isn't seeking an apology from Whateley, saying he "couldn't care less" about him, and he can't see the firestorm surrounding their war of words ending any time soon.

True - but the dressing room culture did not develop overnight under the captain now being punished for it, Steve Smith.

The sports presenter then played the famous clip of Clarke telling James Anderson to "get ready for a broken f***ing arm". However, insisting his conduct as an honest and rules-based captain had never been questioned, Clarke slammed the critics. But like so many matters involving Michael Clarke, it ended up being all about Michael Clarke.

"There's going to be a process for the boys to come back and it is really important we start working on that process from now", Langer told reporters in Sydney ahead of the annual Bradman Foundation dinner. Namely, that they will do whatever it takes to win. Whiteman, who may return to the Western Australia Shield team next week, shaped up nicely before his loose drive and when it appeared the innings could fall away Hardie, the star with the ball yesterday, and Nielsen kept India in the field as they each made composed half-centuries.
