  • Michael Clarke and Andrew Symonds were very close friends at one point of time. Clarke was very supportive at the time of his ‘Monkeygate’ controversy, but things did not go well between the two after Clarke’s rise to vice-captaincy and the infamous scene when Andrew Symonds was sent back home from an ODI series against Bangladesh in 2008. That was the time when Symonds decided to go fishing instead of attending the team meeting which turns out to be the most radical decision of his career as his image did not gel with the team.
