Warne Criticises Australia For Too Much Whingeing
The scandal has seen three players cop massive bans and coach Darren Lehmann resigning while Cricket Australia has set up a review into the culture of men’s national team.
Spin great cricketer Warner, who took 708 wickets in 145 Tests, says he sensed a problem in the Australia camp when they started complaining about the opposition and when things were not going their way.
Warne tells News Corporation I am not sure there were team culture problems, but I have noticed there is a lot of whingeing coming out of the Australian camp in recent times, about the opposition and things like that.
I think that is un-Australian, I have never really heard any Australian sides do that.
But I think it is the excellent opportunity for everyone in world cricket to draw a line in the sand and say ‘how do we want to play the game?
What do we stand for?’ ‘What’s the style of play we want?’ I don’t think we want to play like the Kiwis, which I heard someone say. I mean, cmon. The Kiwis, no thank you.
But we want something in between kiwis and Australia at a time.
I want to play hard but fair, tough, uncompromising cricket, but still, shake hands and play in the spirit of the game and show the good sportsmanship.
Justin Langer, a former teammate of Warne in the national side, has taken over as head coach while wicketkeeper Tim Paine has been selected to lead both the Test and ODI teams.
Warne though has doubts that Paine is the right man to lead the Aussies in the long-staying, saying he doesn’t feel keepers are the best captains.
He adds I don’t think keepers make good captains. I think they make good deputies and are fantastic vice-captains to bounce off to set the standard of fielding.
I don’t think Paine is a long-term option even though he is done a great job in the short time he is there but right now we need to take stock. We have Justin Langer doing all forms, which is excellent.
Eventually, I think that will branch out to a red ball and white ball coach, and we may have different captains in different forms of cricket.
At the moment it is about trusting the Australian cricket team again.
So, these are the points to describe on the Warne criticises Australia for too much whingeing.
