Michael Clarke hits out at Gerard Whateley, Simon Katich in Instagram post

Michael Clarke says Australia 'won't win' being nice

Now Whateley has addressed Clarke's response, refusing to shift his strong stance on the former player.

"Perhaps if he was talented enough or courageous enough to make it onto a cricket pitch he would have a better perspective than from behind a microphone", Clarke wrote in his social media post.

Sharma though said this tag doesn't heap more pressure, instead provides an opportunity for the pacers to perform even better. The pledge was viewed with scorn in some quarters with Shane Warne and Michael Vaughan among the highest-profile ex-players deriding it. "Teams must stop his cover drive and bowl in different areas", he advised the Aussie cricketers.

"Play tough Australian cricket, because whether we like it or not, that is in our blood".

"We might be the most liked team in the world, we're not going to win shit. If they get behind the eight ball if those first two games then they might fight back and win one Sydney or Melbourne, but it will be too late". "Boys and girls like to win".

"It's his style, he's very upfront, in your face".

"You don't need to be best mates with everyone". Your greatest strength can be your greatest weakness. 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. They are always going to be flat we know that.

Kohli, who is the number one Test batsman in the world, has often expressed his love for Test cricket.

The Utah Jazz swap Alec Burks for Kyle Korver
In three seasons with Cleveland, he averaged 9.3 points per game, mostly scoring his points from jumpers and three-point shots. In 2009-10, Korver set a single-season record by shooting a scorching 53.6 percent from deep in 52 games for the Jazz.

"I think that tough, aggressive, competitive, never-take-a-backward-step [attitude] does not mean cheating is fine, does not mean taking sandpaper onto a cricket field is fine".

Interestingly, CA XI's 19-year-old pacer Aaron Hardie - who is yet to play a first class game but bagged four wickets in the first innings - wasn't thrown the ball in the second, as the India openers comfortably negotiated the rest, driving and cutting their way through.

Though he did not name Smith, Clarke was critical of the former captain's leadership, saying he needed to be able to rein in Warner.

I see this as "significant chance" for India, says Steve Waugh "They have got some terrific fast bowlers, as good a group as I've seen for a long time and they've got the spinners that always do the job", Lawson was quoted as saying by reporters.

"What's been forgotten in all of this is we blatantly cheated", he said. It is not unreasonable to suggest that Clarke's tenure coincided with some of the deterioration in the team's reputation, mentality and popularity - remember his "prepare for a broken f*****g arm" jibe at England tail-end batsman Jimmy Anderson? - as well as the cultivation of David Warner as an attack dog.

Katich, however, differed and felt that Australian cricket needed to rectify the reputation garnered from the Newlands incident and years of bad on-field behavior.
