    They can still sleep over.

    I'm not suggesting you bed your team mates.

    And a Test only goes for five days.

    Exactly. This is their work. It's a business trip.

    It's a balance. Nobody's saying that families can't be around for the Xmas Test, but as for the other Tests...is 15 or 20 nights during the series, to much of a sacrifice to make? They're grown men, not kids who need their mum.

    Anyway, getting back on topic, coaching report card.

    No holds barred, but even though it was completely damning of every aspect of this cricket team, it is a good read.

    It's not 15 or 20 nights, they've been in Australia for 2 months now. Being away from my missus and daughter for that amount of time would be extremely difficult for me.
