Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur has hailed India’s captain Virat Kohli as one of great match-winners of the present era

Cricket Australia with just few days to go for the Ashes has sacked Coach Mickey Arthur! Former Australian middle order batsman Darren Lehmann has been named as the replacement of Arthur.

The axing of the four Australian players from the squad for the Mohali Test for not following team instructions is churlish to say the least. It is a well-known fact that the Aussies are sticklers for discipline, but the harsh action taken against Shane Watson, James Pattinson, Mitchell Johnson and Usman Khwaja is impossible to comprehend no matter what.

Not satisfied that India is doing a good enough job of it, the Australian tour management has sought to plunge the team into further disarray. Word coming from the Australian camp is that James Pattinson, Shane Watson, Usman Kwawaja and Mitchell Johnson have been removed from consideration for the third test as punishment for their failure to complete a team assignment.
