Former Australian cricketer Michael Clarke’s troubles are not taking the name of abatement. He is facing constant problems after the alleged video of his assault with his girlfriend went viral.
Now the BCCI has removed him from the commentary panel of the four-match Test series and three-match ODI series between India and Australia. Several players have been included in the commentary panel in place of Clarke. Clarke has suffered a huge loss after missing out on his commentary opportunity in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Mark Waugh will replace Michael Clarke on the commentary panel for the first two Tests in Nagpur and New Delhi. After this, former Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson will take over the responsibility of commentary in the last two Test matches to be held in Dharamsala and Ahmedabad.

According to media reports, BCCI had talked to many other former Australian cricketers like Ricky Ponting, Mike Hussey, Simon Katich and Brad Haddin for commentary, but due to IPL, these players could not join as commentators. Matthew Hayden will do commentary in the Test series.
