That's not true, Symonds had an excellent series in the West Indies later that year, if anything he was better than ever. If you can assign his decline to a particular incident it was being dropped for the India tour after missing a "team meeting".
Indeed. Saved Australia from an embarrassing series draw/loss.

For the second time now; this discussion will go nowhere and only result in the thread being dragged hugely off topic, plus no one wants to hear it. This isn't the place.
Apologies. Point taken - perhaps got carried away seeing the 'Symonds, the victim and unlucky one' posts.

Regardless of the truth of it, Symonds perceived himself to be the victim of those circumstances and there is no doubt that it was part of his eventual slide. Quite tragic really to see a quality cricketer taken out of the game because of his inability to cope with events well. He certainly left a gigantic hole in the ODI side.

This isn't the place to discuss this issue, and it's been done to death.
