Michael Clarke fires back at Buchanan, Symonds and Hayden in the Ashes diary 2015: Former Australian captain Michael Clarke has hit back at teammates Andrew Symonds, Matthew Hayden and former Australian national coach John Buchanan in his new book ‘Michael Clarke’s diary of the 2015 Ashes – honest, insightful, emotional, explosive’.
The three who Clarke took on in his book had criticised him around the time he announced his international retirement.
1. Michael Clarke on John Buchanan:
In August 2015 Buchanan was quoted by News Ltd saying, “Players like Steve Waugh, Adam Gilchrist, Ricky Ponting and others really tried to make the baggy green culture something special but I could sense it was under threat and under Michael’s captaincy I can sense it has disappeared a bit and that disappointed me,”
Clarke has been a bit too sharp in his response to the former coach and has reportedly written in his book: “I don’t think John knows a thing about the Baggy Green, having never worn one,”
“He’s still living off the fact that he coached a team that anyone, even my dog Jerry, could have coached to world domination.”
