Clarke lashes out at journalist after his leadership being questioned

Former Australia captain Michael Clarke lashed out at Australian journalist Gerald Wheatley after he questioned Clarke’s captaincy and that the sandpaper scandal can be traced back to how Clarke led the team.

Clarke’s recent statement about “Australia are not going to win s**t, if they don’t play tough cricket” has not been taken too well by many including his former team-mate Simon Katich.

But journalist Wheatley absolutely slammed the former Australian captain stating his comments as “oblivious” and “nonsensical”.

Wheatley  said on SEN Radio: “That the fundamental lack of understanding of what has taken place and Clarke’s hand in it, you can trace a lot of this back to when they chose to install Clarke as captain.”

And Clarke didn’t take any time to give a fitting reply to a journalist via his Instagram account. He posted a photo and stated all the facts about him as Australia’s captain. He also stated that under his leadership, Australia were ranked No,5 in Tests and in 18 months rose to No.1.

He also lashed out at the journalist saying “While facts don’t seem to play a role in your form of Journalism, in the interest of reporting the truth, here under some items about what you said today, that the public ought to be made aware of just in case you’re believed.”
