Maxwell might have just ended his career, or will his brand of elite honesty be welcome in Cricket Australia's brave new world?

Complained about scheduling of tours and the domestic season. I think he wants to put his case for a test recall but he is missing SS matches to play in these ODI and T20I series.

CA needs to clean out the whole board and start again. If Smith get's sanctioned for not stopping Warner (and Bancroft), the people who approved his vice Captaincy and refused to do anything when he acted like a spud re de Kock are also culpable.

How the hell does Roberts get a promotion? Should be gone with the rest of them. An utter failure during the pay negotiations.

Although why should it surprise me? Langer was an integral part of the Waugh/Ponting generation that prided itself on its "mental disintegration" of opponents and yet had the temerity to act as cricket's moral guardians.
They can pretend to be the return of Jesus and the Apostles for all I care if they perform as well as those teams (except that would make 13 and we only need 12 lol). That opposition fans don't approve would make it all the more enjoyable.

Moeen who....?

The fella that's having a good old sook about being roughed up in the Ashes, because he is trying to sell a book? Unprecedented, surely...

The first part is accurate IMO (although it's a close run thing).

The Aussies should have learned from the BCCI modus operandi. Then they would have refused to continue the tour in SA, unless the ICC dropped all sanctions against the Aussie players.The temerity of them (ICC), the unfairness of it all lol...
