In the fifth Ashes Test match between Australia and England at the Oval in 2013, light played a defiant role and then the skipper Clarke was involved in a heated argument with umpire Aleem Dar where he was seen telling the umpire to not touch him.
He had an ugly spat with his teammate Simon Katich as well after a victory over South Africa in the third Test at Sydney. The Australian team was supposed to do a victory song on the field for which Clarke was asked to stay as he was leaving the field in hurry. Simon Katich grabbed him from behind for which Clarke became impatient.
He had a tiff with South African speedster Dale Steyn during the Capetown Test in 2014. The incident was so rough theat Clarke later on admitted that he crossed the line and said something personal which was not needed at all.
He came back from the middle of the New Zealand tour in March 2010 when his engagement with then-fiancee supermodel Lara Bingle was called-off by Lara Bingle as their relationship was going through tough times.
He has a bullet arm as he throws the ball very fast and accurate.
His interest to play Test cricket is more than playing limited over matches.
Late Philip Hughes who was an Australian cricketer was one of his closest friends. At his funeral Clarke who was then captain of Australian team cried and gave away a very emotional speech.
