This is what Shane Warne feels about Australian cricket
09 Nov 2018: This is what Shane Warne feels about Australian cricket
Former Australian spin ace Shane Warne has offered his services to his nation's governing body.
The leading spinner also questioned the management for not seeking formal help of former players such as Glenn McGrath and Michael Clarke.
Australian cricket is going through one of the lowest phases on and off the field.
Here is more on the same.
CA: Cricket Australia marred by issues
Cricket Australia is facing a major crisis as two more top executives quit the embattled governing body.
This came after the body was hit by a ball-tampering scandal earlier this year.
The team performance boss Pat Howard has now decided to leave next week. Notably, his tenure would have ended next year.
Broadcasting chief Ben has already left.
Frustrated: Cricket Australia is in disarray, feels Warne
Warne is 'frustrated' with the current state of Australian cricket. He is ready to provide formal help.
"In the words of Donald Trump, let's make cricket great again," Warney said in a column for Melbourne's Herald Sun.
"Cricket Australia is in disarray -- fact. CA has lost control and sight of what it was trying to achieve, to make cricket Australia's favourite sport."
Australia: Aussies have been dismal in 2018
With Australia not playing their usual brand of cricket, they have not enjoyed any success since the Ashes victory in 2017-18.
Australia's form in ODIs and T20Is has been dismal.
In ODIs, they lost 7 consecutive matches in 2018.
In T20Is, Aussies were recently whitewashed by Pakistan.
They need some inspiration to regain confidence. Further, off-field issues have hampered their growth.
Thoughts: Why not ask Glenn McGrath to help out, asks Warne
Warne said that he would be happy to help in any capacity. He felt other ex-players would also be willing to chip in.
Warne questioned CA for not seeking help from players like Clarke and Glenn.
"Why not ask Glenn McGrath, offer him a contract to help with the fast bowlers. We are not playing the Australian way at the moment," concluded Warne.
Fact: Warne happy to get involved in any role
"I've always been happy to get involved in any role if Cricket Australia thought I could help the team. I put my hand up to (outgoing team performance boss) Pat Howard a few times, told him I was available if they needed me," said Warne.
