Australian cricketer Michael Clarke could be asked to elaborate his comments following his recent eruption against Cricket Australia (CA). Chief Executive of Cricket Australia (CA) James Sutherland, has asked the skipper to describe his comments that could lead to him losing out on the captaincy.
It was reported by media that Michael Clarke was about to pull out of the 1st test match against India early.

The officials are unhappy with Clarke and his decision to run his own fitness race in an attempt to make a comeback against India in the first Test from December 4 despite of the hamstring injury which tends to re-occur which was reported.
Cricket Australia (CA) wanted Michael Clarke to be suitable before the Sheffield Shield game but instead marked to gain the deadline allowing him to take part in the two day practice game against India. Michael Clarke later confirmed on Monday night that he would not be participating in the warm up practice match and he would play for his club team which is Western Suburbs.
Sutherland told Fairfax Media that he will speak to Clarke and others who have been involved in the procedure to make sure he understands where these things have gone wrong. He added that it is not really suitable for him to go into any more detail. All he said is he is worried that there are some mixed memorandum coming out of Cricket Australia in the last 24 hours or so and he wants to understand why things have fallen off the rails a bit there.
It was reported on Monday that Clarke was enlisted in the team for the first Test at Brisbane against India, but his involvement was contingent on his presentation in the 2 day warm up practice match at Adelaide.
