15th May 2012
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.
