In place of former captain Michael Clarke, Indian cricket officials are reportedly looking for another former Australian player to commentate on the Australians’ upcoming Test series against India.

After footage of Clarke’s public altercation with girlfriend Jade Yarbrough in Noosa was released last week, the repercussions for Clarke continue.

Last week, it was reported that the plans of The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to include Clarke in its commentary team for the highly anticipated tour of the Australians, which begins on February 9, were being reviewed.

On Monday afternoon, a story said that the BCCI was looking for another former player to play Clarke in the TV role. The other former Australian player who is set to join the series’ commentary team is Matthew Hayden.

As potential Clarke replacements, Indian cricket administrators had been “holding secret talks” with former Australian players.

After that, an update to the report stated that Fox Cricket commentator Mark Waugh was being considered as a possible replacement for Clarke.

Fox Cricket will air the four-match series, but the BCCI sells the rights to Indian broadcasters after appointing TV commentators for the series.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Clarke has not signed anything with the BCCI and the Indian cricket board has not contacted him since the viral video of him in Noosa.

On Monday morning, Clarke returned to radio with The Big Sports Breakfast, but he barely addressed the filmed fight during the show.

He also didn’t talk about his commentary job in India, but he said that he had been asked to commentate on the Pakistan Super League T20 tournament that was coming up.

Clarke commented on The Big Sports Breakfast regarding the PSL, saying, “You should see the internationals they have.” There are so many international players participating in that tournament.

Yarbrough mentioned Clarke’s February trip to India in their screaming match, implying that Clarke had asked his ex-girlfriend Pip Edwards to go with him to India.

“Do you want to accompany her to India?” In the video, Yarbrough can be heard screaming.

A member of the public recorded the fight between Clarke and Yarbrough in Noosa, and television host Karl Stefanovic can be seen attempting to calm things down.

Following the release of the footage, the Queensland Police issued fines to Clarke and Yarbrough for causing a disturbance to the public.

As soon as The Daily Telegraph published the video, Clarke offered an apology.

“I’m absolutely devastated that I’ve put people I respect in this position. Clarke stated last week, “My actions in the lead up to this altercation were nothing short of shameful and regrettable.”

“I am devastated that my actions have brought women of integrity and class, as well as my friends, into this situation.”
