4 Australian Test cricketers suspended for indiscipline

Australia’s Test squad has been plunged into problems after 4 cricketers were axed for not doing a homework assignment during the tour in India as Ashes double-header looms against England.

Vice-captain Shane Watson, James Pattinson, Usman Khawaja and Mitchell Johnson were all suspended for 1 Test late Monday in what Australian media called “one of the most sensational days in Australian cricket history”.

Trailing 2-0 in the Indian Test series, all the cricketers had been told to prepare suggestions on how they could enhance and were given 5 days to deliver it but all 4 neglected to meet the timeline and paid a big price.

Skipper Michael Clarke stated the cricketers had shown a lack of respect for head coach Mickey Arthur, with their axing the culmination of a general slide in behavior on the Indian tour.
