    Starc has a tibial bone stress fracture, he is also out of the IPL.

    Just watched the Warner Press Conference and it was a joke

    He apologized and accepted responsibility for his part which is fine but he refused to answer 3 important questions:

    1. Were the 3 players named the only players involved?
    2. Did the coach or coaching staff know?
    3. Was this the first time it happened?

    How the **** can we rebuild with no transparency ??

    James Sutherland has ****ed this investigation, Him and the entire CA board should stand down

    The questions I would have liked answered were was Warner the instigator and if so, didn't he have the guts to do it himself rather than persuade an impressionable kid trying to secure his spot permanently in the side.

    CA should have appointed independent investigators to do a full report on all aspects rather than a knee jerk reaction.

    Think we will find that the choice of Bancroft was due to where he mostly fielded, close in front of batsmen making him a natural link between wicketkeeper and bowler, given ball by w/k, walks with ball (tamper tamper) throws ball to bowler. Only needs to tamper when opportunity arises.

    Maybe Frank but this quote from CA is very concerning:-


    "He was also charged with providing advice to Bancroft on how to tamper with the ball "including demonstrating how it could be done".

    Yes we are following an absolutely shattered team, physically and psychologically.

    This is going to take a long time to get over thanks Mr. Warner.

    I thought Renshaw and Burns would get us off to a good start and after wicket fell, we would then crash. But only Khawaja put up a fight.

    Apart from Cummins bowling, the tour is a total train wreck now.

    Wasn't expecting too much from team, SA big score took what ever wind was in the sail out. Renshaw and Burns doomed to fail, bad vibes in team, no time to adjust after flight, no time in nets, poor preparation and Hanscombe hasn't played for a while and not convinced he is that good. Cummins has been great all series, strong both physically and mentally.

    Hopefully Handscomb will be dropped after this test. They should not have brought him on the tour.

    Last weekend Renshaw and Burns had their feet up with no training and no batting practice so what could be expected but disaster?
