Melbourne:

Spin legend Shane Warne has termed the decision to dump four Australian cricketers, including vice-captain Shane Watson, from the team for not making presentations a "ridiculous" one.

"......the issue of 4 players being unavailable for Aust selection due to not delivering homework or a report to the coach, the answer is simple.

"The Capt runs the team & in conjunction with the selectors picks the team. The Capt should always have final say. Ridiculous what's happening," Warne wrote on his official twitter page @warne888.

Throughout his illustrious career, Warne has never been a big advocator of coaches for the senior teams and had time and again questioned the then head coach John Buchanan's role behind the stupendous success of Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting's teams.

"As I have always said the coach should not be a selector. He should communicate well with the players & help them prepare, that's it!" he wrote.

However, another former Australian player, Dean Jones felt that it's not a big deal to seek players' point of view.

"Coaches in all sports often asks his team on how they are travelling? Asking for suggestions etc.. No big a deal is it?" Jones stated.
