It starts with the T20’s on Wednesday I think.

India are even tougher opposition than RSA. We will have our work cut out.

Looking at our test side I’m wondering if Khawaja will be fit in time from his surgery on his knee I think it was.....

the Indians will give us curry:D in a hurry.

The only Australians who could be happy over the poor effort by our cricket team would be Smith and Warner. They will be expecting to just walk in at the end of their suspensions.

Shaun Marsh is a certainty now after his 163 not out today starring in WA chasing down 313 to beat SA.

The sooner the better!
Ban them for life or 10yrs.
They brought the national team and Australia into disrepute.
They got a slap on the wrist and instead of encouraging the rest to lift their game the solution taken appears to be a campaign to get them back into the team early

It’s not like it’s a severe crime. If they do it again ban them for life.

They deserve a second chance.

With Warner’s attitude though I dunno if he shall be back.

The campaign I believe is to allow them to play Shield cricket.

Look at Faf Du Plessis he’d be laughing when they were touring here.

He did it too and got a slap on the wrist.

Nonsense! They should have just got a fine like other players from other nations who do the same thing!

Finally some common sense in cricket by not giving in to the "let them play" people pushing for Smith and Warner to be picked.
Serving their full suspension is the best option even if Australia loses a few games.
It shows we are genuine about stamping out cheating.

That's not common sense because the suspensions were too much to begin with! Unfortunately they gave in to the people and media who love to be outraged!
