Former Australian captain Michael Clarke has hit back at media personality Gerard Whateley over claims the latter made on his radio show on Wednesday.

Among other things, Clarke labelled Whateley a "headline-chasing coward" for suggesting the former skipper was responsible for the situation the current team finds itself in.

The drama started when Clarke appeared on Macquarie Sports Radio on Tuesday afternoon and said that the Australian cricket team needs to stop being concerned with being well liked.

"Australian cricket, I think, needs to stop worry about being liked and start worrying about being respected," Clarke said.

"If you try and walk away from it, we might be the most liked team in the world, we’re not going to win s--t. We won’t win a game."

Former Australian opener Simon Katich appeared on Whateley's show on SEN on Wednesday morning and rebutted some of Clarke's comments.

"Once again we find someone missing the point," Katich said of Clarke.

"The point is, we were caught for blatantly cheating and we have to rectify that as soon as possible to earn back the respect of the cricketing public in Australia and worldwide."

While Clarke and Katich had a well-publicised run-in in the SCG dressing rooms many years ago, it was Whateley's comments that the 37-year-old took umbrage at.

Whateley had penned an editorial on SENcriticising Clarke as one of "the last of the great climate deniers."

"Clarke’s interpretation of the predicament the Australian men’s Test team finds itself in is breathtaking," Whateley wrote.

"That he would continue to rely on the line – the fiction his and subsequent teams used to excuse all manner of boorish behavior – might be the single greatest piece of nonsense over the past nine months."

In response to this, Clarke, who led the Test side from 2011 to 2015, shared a long reply to his social media accounts containing information "the public ought to be made aware of."

Clarke shared several 'facts' of his own before unloading with an almighty spray on the veteran broadcaster.

"For him to insinuate that I am responsible for the ball tampering issue makes him nothing more than a headline chasing coward," Clarke wrote.

"Perhaps if he was talented enough or courageous enough to make it onto a cricket pitch he would have a better perspective than from behind a microphone.

"Finally Mr Wheatley (sic), if you think that the current No. 1 team in the world of cricket right now puts being liked as of higher importance than being respected and playing to win inside the rules of the game than you're as delirious as you are ill informed."
