Cricketer of the Australian National side, Andrew Symonds, is now in a bit tight situation after being blamed for lack of commitment towards his team of late. Incidentally, the tall-lanky all-rounder of the Australian cricket Team had gone fishing last week leaving the practice-schedule of his team.
And furthermore, the player will miss the ODI series against Bangladesh because he went straight to his home from Darwin without even bothering to attend the compulsory team meeting.
It’s not for the first time that Symonds has committed such a mistake that is against the rule of the game. In 2005, he got drunk and he even fought with a South African Rugby player in the year 2006.
And importantly both Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke, who had helped this player in previous cases, this time, have stood silent. According to the Australian Cricket Manager, the board will now tear up the contract with the player this time.
Though the Australian cricket board seems to be bit stubborn this time but let see what actually they do to solve this problem this time round.
I would really appreciate the level of professionalism in Australian cricket board and BCCI should learn some thing from them. As it is considered one of the most unprofessional cricket board which revolves around few people.
