Former Australia cricketers have expressed surprise at the exclusion of four Australian cricketers from the squad for third Test against India in Mohali.
"I'm surprised that's the penalty for something so mundane. It seems like it was on a schoolboy tour or something. It's an over the top reaction," former Australia captain Allan Border said.
Former Australia batsman Mark Waugh said he was stunned when he heard this news, "I'm stunned. I've never heard of this sort of thing before at top level in any sport. When you are losing there are niggling things there but they're grown men, it's not school boy stuff. It's not under-6s, this is Test cricket… there would have been a better way."
