    Should stay and fight for his place in Australia. It's not as if they've said they aren't going to pick him. It's fair enough that he loses his contract because he's hardly played, even at state level, since the 2007 WC.

    Don't let that get in the way of a good knee-jerk, though.

    He's not going anywhere.

    Shaun has been told he got a one-day ranking but was not when the formula was put together in the 25 contracted players," he added
    He won't go any where, but I could understand if he was pissed about missing out on all that IPL money.

    Distinct lack of a quote in the article.

    Seems like it Tait lashes Cricket Australia.

    "I am pretty ready to go. If I was to play cricket tomorrow I could wheel myself out," Tait said.
    Why doesn't he do it then, can he just join the IPL now.

    TBH the bigger issue is playing for Aus in England. Definitely is rough that he was being told to get ready to play over there and then losing his contract. The decision to not let him play IPL was proper, especially if the selectors had intentions of him easing his way back for a tilt at England. Now it's all confused; is he a wanted player for England or not?

    If he thinks he deserves a contract then he's not being realistic.

    I can understand Tait's frustration with missing out on IPL money and then a CA contract. I would probably feel the same.

    However, it is more annoying than wrong. The facts are that he was under contract and that contract was not renewed.

    Well yes, but they don't want to give him a central contract. Tait should grow up a little here.

    White got one. What did he do to deserve it? He didn't score many runs against NZ or SA, bowled fewer overs than part-timers and was dropped with no sign of being picked again any time soon.

    Don't H8 the Tait.

    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.

    At least he was able to perform over a domestic season.
