They have been criticized world wide and its time that they make a comeback in the International circuit. They’ll do their best to ensure they repay the criticism CA had to face. The spin sensation, Shane Warne also feels it was a overly harsh punishment. Criticism from all over the globe is not something that would be easy to digest.
Shane Watson was appointed to a panel with aftermath of the ball tampering scandal. He is no more interested to play for Australia keeping his age and fitness in mind. But he informs being open for the mentoring job.
