Cricket Australia were quick to dismiss the rumours of the row ever taking place
Cricket Australia have dismissed rumours of captain Michael Clarke and recently retired veteran batsman Michael Hussey having a heated confrontation at the end of Hussey’s last Test against Sri Lanka in Sydney.
According to reports, Clarke and Hussey both had different ideas about where the post-match celebrations should take place.
Hussey wanted the celebrations to be held in the dressing room and then the team hotel, while Clarke, on the other hand, preferred the party to take place on Australia media mogul James Packer’s super yacht, the Seahorse.
Hussey, according to reports, refused to go on the super yacht and was joined by two other players.
However, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that the incident had quickly been shot down by Cricket Australia and Hussey’s management team.
The only element of the initial reports that was revealed to be true was the part about Hussey not joining the rest of his team-mates on the super yacht.
The Sydney Morning Herald also noted that the post-match celebrations had in fact taken place in the Sydney dressing room and was moved to the team’s hotel until 10pm, upon where Hussey went to spend time with his family, who were staying with him at the hotel.
