    Yep, let's do it again, this time with the Ashes 2-2 at the Oval.

    Wouldnt get one as some of the "management principles" (and I use that term very loosely) displayed here were discredited eons ago

    If this sort of **** was left unpunished you're kidding yourself if you think we'd be winning two matches in the Ashes.

    By punishing them in this fashion it ensures this won't be happening in the Ashes or any other series.

    I can see the logic of it from the long-term. But if people do pull this **** again it'll be beyond the pale.

    Arthur's staked his entire coaching legacy on this move. Everything Australia does between now and Sydney will be compared to this.

    Impressed with Patto's words, good man.

    Watson on the other hand, far out. His antics are worse than the time burgu ordered wagyu on ubuntu.

    the worst thing about this is it has painted all the players with the same brush by coming out and saying they are punishing these players this time but it's also others in the team slacking.

    no the worse thing is definitely not being able to drop watson and making him stay there
    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

    Just when I thought they were going to pick Johnson and things couldn't get any worse.

    Wish the captain and coach had sorted this out when the problems started instead of letting it build up and acting now.

    They look like a pair of gooses, sabotaging the team and themselves.

    Hope they have the courage of their convictions from now on.

    It helps explain why Usman was dropped from the one day team. for no obvious reason.

    I'm shocked by the reaction of ex-players claiming they shouldn't be asked to do "homework" and punished for not completing such a task.

    In the days of Bob Simpson, if after 2 big losses the players were ordered to do a 10km run the following day and 4 players just stayed in bed, I'm sure there would have been serioues repercussions. The players may not have been dropped but they would have been flogged by Simmo.

    Look at sports like AFL...players regularly get dropped because, for example, they miss a recovery session with no reasonable excuse. Often there is no suggestion they were out boozing it just isn't accepted. It's about not tolerating it when players **** on the team culture you're trying to build, which is pretty much what the Mohali Four did here.

    Hahaha WOW that article is an absolute joke! Smacks of a dude who was somewhat important 30 years ago and wishes it was still the Wild West '80s.

    I especially loved this line... "For now, I want you to go back to your room and write a 3000 word essay on how a South African from nowhere managed to get the job in the first place"

    Hahaha yeah because Arthur had no credentials at all for the job did he, what with leading SA to number 1 in the Test rankings and all. Whether you like Arthur or rate him, to suggest he was some nobody shoehorned into the Test coaching role is just utter bull****.
