This is extraordinary. How about you taking some responsibility James, it's easy to stand there and blast these guys so that you look tough to all your administrator mates. How about CA stood up for an Australian player just once. You folded to the Indians and we lost Symonds and now you're letting the Poms push you around over Warner. Sutherland needs to manage these sort of situations a whole lot better than just coming out with statements like this. It serves no constructive purpose, can only undermine morale, and further damage the clearly fractured relationship between the board and the team. You're the boss Mr Sutherland- figure it out.

I hope some one in the BCCI spoke this passionately and sternly in response to the spot fixing and betting scams by the franchise owners without using any diplomatic language.
