Clarke denies Oz players taking measures to cheat Hot Spot

Sydney, Aug 7 (ANI): Australian Test captain Michael Clarke has denied that Australian players are trying to cheat Hot Spot technology and is bemused by allegations that batsmen are putting a special coating on their bats to beat the technology.

According to, the Australian captain insists that he has never heard a conversation involving players, bat manufactures, or anyone else, which addressed trying to beat hot spot in any way.

Clarke said that he found the accusation quite funny and he could not talk for everybody but there was not a person in the Australian change rooms, who was a cheat, adding that it was not the way the country played cricket.

Talks of players using silicon-based tape to fool the Hot Spot technology during the Ashes, had recently emerged.(ANI)
