IND vs AUS: Michael Clarke Fired From BCCI’s Commentary Panel For Border-Gavaskar Trophy- Reports.
With ex-captain Michael Clarke poised to be replaced, Indian cricket officials are apparently searching for another former Australian player to commentate the Aussies’ forthcoming Test series against India.
Following the release of the video last week showing Clarke’s public argument with his girlfriend Jade Yarbrough in Noosa, the consequences for Clarke have continued.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which will be hosting the eagerly anticipated Australian tour starting on February 9, was said to be rethinking its decision to have Clarke join its commentary team last week, according to a report.
IND vs AUS: Michael Clarke Fired From BCCI’s Commentary Panel For Border-Gavaskar Trophy- Reports
On Monday afternoon, The Age ran an article stating that the BCCI was now looking for another former player to take Clarke’s place and play the TV role. The other former Australian player scheduled to join the commentary panel for the series is Matthew Hayden.
Minutes afterward, The Daily Telegraph reported that Indian cricket executives had been “having secret talks” with former Australian players regarding possible Clarke successors.
When contacted by both newspapers, the BCCI declined to comment.
While Fox Cricket will broadcast the four-Test series, the BCCI names TV commentary teams for series that take place in India before selling the rights to broadcasters.
According to The Daily Telegraph, since the video of him in Noosa went viral, neither the BCCI nor the Indian cricket board has contacted Clarke.

On Monday morning, Clarke returned to the radio airways with The Big Sports Breakfast, although he barely touched on the violence captured on camera.
Additionally, he made no mention of his commentary work in India, but he did say that he had just been asked to commentate on the next Pakistan Super League T20 tournament.
Yarbrough made a reference to Clarke’s upcoming trip to India in their shouting match, implying that Clarke had asked his ex-girlfriend Pip Edwards to travel with him.
A bystander captured the incident between Clarke and Yarbrough in Noosa, with TV anchor Karl Stefanovic seen attempting to diffuse the situation.
Following the release of the clip, Queensland Police fined Clarke and Yarbrough for causing a public disturbance.
As The Daily Telegraph released the video, Clarke apologized.
