Sydney, July 23 (ANI): An article in an Australian newspaper has claimed that the Twenty20 revolution could be responsible for the short attention spans of batsmen who cannot stick out the tough periods, and the CA management could have done more to avoid the airing of toxic dressing room gossip involving Michael Clarke and Shane Watson.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the superior techniques of the English batsmen including that of 22-year old centurion Joe Root suggested that something had gone wrong in the Australian coaching.
The report said that the Sheffield Shield in Australia had been squeezed by the BBL, and the Ryobi Cup had been shaved back to six matches, just two years before Australia hosts the World Cup, and this was not a healthy development.
Cricket Australia's plans of flying in Michael Hussey to Sydney for the Big Bash League to play for Sydney Thunder had also come at the wrong time, the report added. (ANI)
