Australian spin legend Shane Warne on Monday labelled Cricket Australia‘s (CA) decision as ‘weird’ to announce the squad so early for the upcoming second of the three-Test series vs South Africa at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart from November 12. He was also supported by former Australian captain Michael Clarke, who backed Warne and felt it was too early to announce the squad for the second test, thus giving South Africa more time to prepare themselves. Warne also seemed to be unhappy with the same squad retained for the second Test, as the current squad has clearly struggled in the ongoing opening Test at Perth.

‘Cricket is a performance-based game, you need to perform. If you don’t perform over a period of time then you start to look at other players. Let the Australian players concentrate on this game, and you can worry about that later. Weird timing for me,’ said Warne to Channel 9. Meanwhile, Clarke feels Australia should take it one game at a time, and not think too far ahead right from the start. he conditions are all set to be different in the Tasmanian region, especially from the condition at Perth in Western Australia, where South Africa are currently dominating.

Legendary Australian leg spinner Shane Warne has accused current skipper Steven Smith of bad captaincy for his handling of off spinner Nathan Lyon during the team s current struggle against South Africa in the ongoing Test of the three-match series in Perth. Smith gave only 12 overs to Lyon on Day Three as temperatures soared into the high 30s, thus drawing criticism from Warne, who believes the skipper s snubbing of the off-spinner would have sapped the latter s confidence, reported ANI.
