Former Australian skipper Michael Clarke has been criticised in the social media after his repeated mistakes in pronunciation of his former teammate and Australian player Adam Voges. Clarke was on the receiving end on Twitter on Friday, during Day 1 of the first of the three-Test series vs South Africa at the Western Australia Cricket Association (WACA) Stadium in Perth. Clarke’s pronunciation made the name of Voges sound like Vogues. With this Test being just his second game on the commentary duty, Clarke said that he as of now did not know what is the actual way to pronounce his name.

Clarke was also in the recieving end for pronouncing JP Duminy’s nae incorrectly. ‘Can someone please tell Michael Clarke it’s D”u”miny not D”i”miny nor is Adam Voges a woman’s magazine thank goodness for [ABC Radio] grandstand,’ a viewer cited his views on Twitter. ‘Clarke’s inability to pronounce his former teammates name doing wonders for his “ultimate team man” credibility. #flog,’ some other viewer wrote on Twitter. ‘Michael Clarke isn’t sure of the definitive pronunciation of Voges surname. What a shock,’ another declared sarcastically. Clarke confirming my dislike for him with his pronunciation of Voges,’ again sated by a viewer, reports Mail Online.

Whereas one of the viewers was irritated with a television ad featuring David Warner. ‘Not sure how long I can put up with the Warner OLED TV ad/Clarke calling Adam Voges “Vogues” combo,’ the viewer wrote. Also, somebody stated that fellow commentator Ian Haley too was adobting the wrong pronunciation style along with Clarke. ‘After a brief discussion, Clarke has just convinced Healy to abandon pronouncing Voges correctly. Good stuff,’ the viewer added.

Nevertheless, Clarke got backing from few of his fans and supporters. ‘Nothing pleases me more than Michael Clarke revealing that he pronounces Voges’ surname however the hell he likes,’ said one of his supporters.
