    The Warner thing was rather strange. Should've been suspended well beyond the Ashes and shouldn't have stayed with the squad, especially in relation to his recent history.

    The last thing Aus needs is a "lad" in the coaches position.

    No matter what, it's a bad look for Arthur; if they shouldn't have been out, either he's lost the confidence of the players and they just disregarded him saying as much or he let them go which would be disregarding the instructions from home.

    Yeah concerned about this. Arguably our problems stem from an "old boys" sort of culture, keeping it insular by bringing back old-timers can't be the best for that.

    Arthur didn't have a say in Warner's punishment though. It was an CA matter. However, there was talk Arthur and the team manager and whichever one of Bailey/Clarke didn't really rush in tell CA what happened.

    I do agree I find it strange that we've spent a lot of time trying to drag the team into the 21st century in terms of professionalism, and we're gonna hire a guy who uses the term old school. But it'll be on an interim basis. He can lose the job.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Lehmann's generally not too fussed about players getting on the tiles if it bonds them as a team, did enough of that himself as a younger man and he's definitely a strong believer in guys getting to know each other socially. Wondering whether stuff like that will factor in as coach as of the Test side, especially on tour.

    I mean, when you're coaching, say, a state side and the guys have common bonds, it's probably okay but I do wonder whether Lehmann really is the guy to unite a team with deeper cliques which is away from home.

    True, but the chain of events is interesting: Sutherland blasts the team leadership, Sutherland flies to England, Arthur gets sacked.

    well to get technical Sutherland didn't have a say in Warner's ban. CA gets an independent person to judge on their matters. Anyway that doesn't. WHat matters is that it was CA's matter so if Arthur has tried to cover it up......

    Isn't that part of the point? Sutherland made it pretty clear that he wasn't happy with the whole matter in general including the leniency of Warner's ban.

    Anyway, enough tinfoil-hattery. We'll get a clearer idea tonight.

    Still pinning the majority of negativity in the team on having to keep Watson in.
