James Sutherland, CEO Cricket Australia announced on Tuesday that the three players would travel back home. However, several cricket fans and pundits have raised a question on how the coaching department was unaware of it.

Meanwhile, Adam Voges has come out and has defended the Australian captain by saying that it is genuinely possible that Lehamm was unaware of the actions of the Australian team.

Voges said:

“Being in a cricketing change room throughout the last 16 years of my life, the lunchtime break is not generally a time where you sit down purely as a group and discuss a lot of things.”

“It isn’t really until you step back onto the field and the captain has a bit of a say about what the plans are coming up to the next session that everybody is together again at the same time.

“So I think it’s genuinely possible that the three guys that have already been mentioned are the only guys who did know about it at the time.”

Voges also mentioned that the players are currently ‘struggling’.

“It’s been an incredibly tough day for a lot of them. They’re still struggling, a lot of the team. You can’t go to bed one night and wake up the next morning and it’s all gone so they’re still living with this at the moment.”
