Michael Clarke slams headline-chasing coward as war-of-words heats up

Michael Clarke slams headline-chasing coward as war-of-words heats up

Reports mentioned that Shaw was unable to put any pressure on his leg. Cricket Australia reported that he later returned to the SCG at lunch wearing a moon boot and was on crutches. Speaking to cricket.com.au, the former Test skipper said the Queenslander will not only be the leading run scorer against India, but also the player of the series. And I think that's really what Michael would be trying to say - that it's about that competitive edge."I do know if we lose that, and even our great era of Australian cricket when we lost that edge - and I'm thinking back post the Test match against India here - and everyone was a bit punched by that incident and a bit anxious about "were we overstepping the mark?' and 'should we be playing the game in this sort of spirit?' we just started to play poorly".

Clarke was fined for telling England paceman James Anderson to "get ready for a broken... arm" during a test in the 2014-15 Ashes series, but has always maintained it was in response to Anderson making a threat at Australia batsman Bailey. "We can't get to the point and just say "right they're back". It's nice to have Davey in and Steve had a hit yesterday, I had breakfast with him on Monday morning and I caught up with Davey for a couple of hours that afternoon as well.

"In the Ashes they nearly whitewashed England, knocked them over, and so as far as I'm concerned they are starting favourites".

"We had a fantastic series against India, closer than the margin suggests", said Gower, one of the leading Test batsmen of his era, during the inaugural Ranji Memorial Public Conversation on Cricket in London. We had a great catch-up. At times, he did look shaky with circumspect timing, as seen in his dismissal off a full toss caught at mid-wicket.

"I read what "Painey" [Tim Paine] has said and I agree 100 per cent with what he's trying to do and I back him 100 per cent with what he's trying to do as captain of Australia". But from an opposition perspective, we're not concerned about being liked one bit'.

Having been national team coach since May, Langer this week told his mentor Alan Jones in a radio interview that the early passages of his four-year contract have been like "navigating through a fire".

This was after Cricket Australia XI finished at 544 runs (151.1 overs) in their first innings and kept India in the field for as long as possible. He'd always say go out there and do what you've got to do to get into the contest but if you go personal, we wouldn't even think of using sandpaper, but that's too far.

As Australia's players work to clean up their on-field conduct in the wake of the ball tampering crisis, Clarke fired a broadside, saying "we're not going to win s.t" worrying about how others viewed them.

A former Australian captain - who once called a press conference to announce he'd be keeping a lower profile - sees it differently, and has let the world know on Twitter. I wanted it to be between us because there's lots to be spoken about and then over time we'll bring the brotherhood together and everything will be okay.

"I think it will take composure and character to stem the flow which the opposition gains, block that momentum and try and turn the tide towards us, slowly but surely". "That includes the boys".

They do have concerns, though, for they have set to settle on an opening combination or a No.6. I believe everything happens for a reason, said Ashwin.

"In my mind Michael was a very good captain", Harris said. "They're all a little bit different".
