Dale Steyn has broken his silence on his feud with Michael Clarke, and revealed what the Australian said to him in Cape Town could not be repeated in public.
However the South African quick said their squabble was blown out of proportion.
Steyn said he never intended “to start a massive thing” back in August, when he said he may not ever forgive Clarke.
“Maybe I just said too much,” Steyn was quoted as saying by AAP.
“It got blown up completely, it was like two schoolgirls the way the media got hold of it … it was a bit silly.
“I said if I see him, we’ll have a normal chat between the two of us.
“It’s got nothing to do about ‘I’ll see you in the car park and we’ll beat the crap out of each other’.
“Hopefully he gets well, he’s a great player and I think there’s enough respect from both of us.”
Steyn said that Australia were well-known for “bullying teams”, and that there were certain lines that shouldn’t be crossed.
“I don’t play my cricket like that,” he said.
“I don’t quite agree with the way some of the things are done, I think there’s a line.
“And I try to stay close to that line but never overstepping it.”
