Australian team’s arrival in India had got a lot of people talking. The Australian cricket team arrived on February 13 for their four-Test series for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2016-17. But rather than heading straight to their hotels after landing, the entire Australian team was seen doing something unusual and unexpected at the Mumbai airport. The players were spotted loading their baggage in a tempo with their attacking opening batsman David Warner leading here too. Warner was seen standing in the tempo and arranging his teammates’ kit-bags with his captain Steven Smith passing the bags while standing outside the vehicle with other players being present there.

Talking about the same, Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell said, “We got a message when we were on the bus saying we got to put the bags at the back of the (luggage) truck. So we all wheeled our bags around and the Reverend (Warner) was in the back of the truck helping out and so everyone jumped on board. I suppose that’s good leadership from The Cannon (Porter). We’re too happy to help and everyone was pretty tired after the flight and thought the more people that got their hands dirty and got the job done quicker to get to the hotel quickly.”

These comments may not go down well with BCCI who took away their hands from this issue saying it is not their responsibility to provide the visitors with loaders. Maxwell may have given a plain statement but one cannot overlook the sarcastic part involved it given the fact that he is a part of the Australian cricket team who have made it clear about using sledging as a tool against India when on-field.

Australian squad is scheduled to play a three-day tour match against the India A team, captained by Hardik Pandya before heading to Pune for the opening match of the series which starts February 23.
