Swearing at Anderson during first Ashes Test did not set right example: Clarke
London: Australia cricket captain Michael Clarke has expressed his regret over his swearing at England fast bowler James Anderson during last year`s first Ashes Test match at The Gabba in Brisbane.
Clarke, 33, was then fined 20 per cent of his match fee for the incident, said that telling England batsman Anderson to expect a broken arm was an unacceptable statement to make, but added that he did not regret standing up for George Bailey.
That match was played between November 21 and 25, and Clarke`s comments were picked up by a stump microphone, reports the BBC.
He was then found guilty of breaching the International Cricket Council code of conduct for "using language or a gesture that is obscene or insulting".
Clarke said that he had no regret about being extremely honest with Anderson, but regretted that everybody heard it, and accepted that it was not a good example to set to aspiring cricketers or youngsters.
