Taylor takes swipe at Ponting and Clarke

10:01 am on 30 October 2013

The former Australia cricket captain Mark Taylor has taken aim at the two most recent holders of the position, with the simmering feud between Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke showing no sign of abating.

The bitterness between the pair has continued to grow in the wake of comments Ponting has made in his new autobiography and threatens to overshadow the lead-up to the Ashes series.

Taylor, says the matter should have been resolved in the changing room not in public.

He says Ponting has failed to recognise the sanctity of the Australian changing room suggesting Ponting has exploited the situation for the sake of book sales.
