When Shane Watson pushed Mitchell Johnson's face into the toilet – Read full story

New Delhi: In a shocking revelation, former Australian speedster Mitchell Johnson has shared an incident where his compatriot and team-mate Shane Watson once shoved his head into the toilet.

Johnson, who retired from international cricket in November last year, has mentioned the incident in his autobiography Resilient, which released on Monday.

Johnson said that in 2000, while Watson and Johnson were at the Centre of Excellence, things got heated between the two while they were wrestling during an ad break.

"Every night we'd pile into the common room and watch Neighbours before dinner," Johnson wrote in his autobiography Resilient, which released on Monday. "I was always a bit willing as every time there was an ad break there would be an all-in wrestle on the floor until the show started again.

"In one wrestle I was dragged through the door and into the bathroom by a heap of guys and somebody pushed my head into the toilet. I wasn't impressed and the red mist descended. Somehow I managed to break free and I grabbed whoever it was by the front of the shirt as I got up and someone grabbed mine.

"I raised my right fist and he did the same. Then we looked at each other. It was Watto. I think we both looked at each other and thought: nah, I'm not going to hit him, he's my mate, and put our fists down at the same time. I can't say I wasn't angry. It took me a few days to get over it."

That incident however had no impact whatsoever on the duo, who played 43 Tests together, won an Ashes series at home and was also part of Australia's 2015 World Cup winning squad.
