    This incident gives perspective to the stupidity of standing down players for not doing their homework in India. Arthur and his clowns set such a disproportionate punishment for that indiscretion that you'd really have to shoot Warner if you wanted to recalibrate punishments for crimes committed. Management deprived themselves of options and room to move when they overreacted in homeworkgate that its actually understandable they tried to cover up this incident. Fining the players in India and sending Warner home now would have been justifiable punishments. All they have succeeded in doing is going ott in India and caught out being sneaky here. As a consequence the mishandling gave Watson the excuse to complain of dbl stds, divide and embarrass the team and make mgmt look like hypocrites and incompetents. The ill will from homeworkgate is still festering.

    Khawaja seems at least to have ****ish tendencies too, tbf.

    Seems quite a big fan of Usman Khawaja anyway.

    After homeworkgate Arthur said that Watson has always been a brilliant professional but for Khawaja he hoped it would be the turning point. Guy's obviously not always pulling his weight, and I hate that. Hughes can come into the side in the ****less team. Least he seems to work his socks off on his batting.

    Agreed. I've always thought there is more to Hughes than his efforts have so far produced. I mean you don't score the runs he did against the SA quicks and then tear up the county bowlers for a year without having "something".

    Certainly if I was an Aussie fan I'd rather have a bloke like Hughes wearing the Baggy Green and work on him, than someone like Warner who has probably done more in the last few years but seems to take the whole gig for granted. It's got to be said, from where I'm sitting this current Aussie side is a shambles from Management down. Poor form and bad performances can be tolerated, lack of commitment, self control and lack of respect for their privileged positions can not.

    If players like Warner, Watson and Usman et al can't pull their heads in then **** em off and bring in players that will knuckle down, even if on the face of it they aren't as talented.........the harsh reality is they can't do any worse.

    nah Warner is genuinely talented. Has scored some absolutely brilliant centuries. The Hobart one in particular springs to mind.

    But really, he should have been sent home after first whiff of this story. Absolutely ridiculous for CA to try to cover it up.

    Faulkner is a bit of a rare cat, with a similar level of self-confidence to Warner and Maxwell. That he wasn't out and about with those other young guys might show that he "gets it" a bit more, and also speaks for the environment he's emerged from in Tasmania.

    Yeah I was thinking of Moises as a possible replacement for Watson but would I like Faulkner's attitude and would have him above Henriques.
