Now it's all confused; is he a wanted player for England or not?
    I don't think it's confused. Warner's in the T20 WC squad and he doesn't have a contract. The selector guy made it quite clear players without contracts can be picked, so if Tait gets fit, bowls well in the Aus A series / county matches then he could still play in the ODIs in England, they're not until September.

    Gayle's found himself a fan, anyway:

    "Tait said he could not disagree with Gayle's statement as his playing future seems closely tied to the shorter forms of the game.

    "It's a pretty big call coming from a Test captain, pretty amusing really, but I think he's probably spot-on," Tait said."

    So can Tait get on the next flight and play IPL now or has his contract not yet run out?

    Don't disagree with the latter but it is a little weird that a player being asked to prepare for an international tournament isn't supported by a contract.
    Well, White was available and not injured so I'd say that's a good start

    I agree it's strange he's in there too, he doesn't seem to provide a lot to the team. But I wouldn't have Tait in there for him either. Given Tait's action requires him to do a lot of bowling for him to achieve a little bit of consistency, and every time he does a lot of bowling he breaks down it seems, I think the decision is a good one.

    There kinda was, tbf:

    ---

    If he were to play in the county championship as a non-overseas player he's a de facto Pom, even if we can't call him up for 4 years after his last appearance for Australia.

    In practice, of course, the chances of him playing for us are zero.

    However, it is more annoying than wrong. The facts are that he was under contract and that contract was not renewed.
    Not very fair though. If they're not going to pick him again, why wouldn't they let him play IPL? If they are, why no contract? They're saying to Tait- look mate, you can't play for us, but we're not letting you play for those guys either. Quite shabby treatment IMO.

    That was a bit dodgy, but no contract doesn't mean he can't play for Australia.

    That isn't the point though - the point is that if you've not received a contract (out of 25 names) it's a fairly sure indication that you're a fair way down the pecking-order. And if such a thing is the case, it's a bit rich to have stopped you playing in some mickey-mouse tournament.

    If he is contracted then they can tell him what they think is best. The decision was made whilst he was under contract. They are under no obligation to offer him a new one. Maybe they had not decided the full list a few weeks ago?

    Contracts are like relationships. You are either in one or not. If someone breaks up with you then overnight you go from sleeping with them, to not being able to touch them. It is a considerable change in circumstance. Same with contracts. He was under contract, now he will not be. When he was under contract he was treated as everyone else was.

    Maybe the decision hadn't been made then. Tait was still under contract to CA, and I didn't hear him complaining when he was being paid whilst injured. Tait's been supported through injury, and through a time when he couldn't work out whether he wanted to play cricket or not. In Tait's case I'd say him not being in the top 25 names is an indication of how much cricket he's played recently and his history of injuries. That they didn't want him to play the tournament could be taken as an indication that he's still in their plans. If he pulls himself together and gets a season under his belt where he performs well he might find himself back in the contract list.

    The contracted players list isn't the be all and end all.
