Symonds situation leaves Australia in limbo for India

Jon Pierik, writing in the Herald Sun, wonders about the options for Australia’s tour of India in October if Andrew Symonds is not there.

With Symonds now contemplating his future in the wake of the embarrassing fishing fiasco in Darwin, Australia's national selectors will have to at least discuss other options ahead of naming the touring squad in a fortnight. Even if Symonds does make himself available, it's questionable whether he will be in the right frame of mind to deal with six strenuous weeks on the road.

Meanwhile, Clayton Murzello in the Mid-Day recounts other instances of player indiscipline, with Doug Walters featuring prominently.
