Refuse to play with each other which is why Clarke isn't in the T20 side, and Bailey isn't going to SA...

Bailey isn't in the Test squad because he got dropped. Clarke isn't in the T20 squad because he retired from T20I's before he got dropped. They played with each other during the ODI series, which concluded only the other day. The only rift I've seen this summer (other than the Oz v England thing) is the one between KP and the rest of the world.

There are other possible explanations. The one I mentioned seems the most likely to me.

Yeah right, caused most likely by George Bailey sending text message to KP telling him what a crap captain Pup is, I'm guessing. Come to think of it, you could be right. I might even ring my buddy, Malcolm Conn up and mention it to him.

You are in danger of being labelled the forum troll, Arthur.

I know at times, the Australian team has appeared to have been following a movie script, and the England team do so constantly, but it's all happy campers under Uncle Boof.

Mentioned Root in the text, which apparently is an Australian swear word.

I think there was something about them falling out over the team song?

How could anyone, even Clarke or Jimmy Anderson, not love Smilin George?

Dunno. I read somewhere Clarke and Bailey didn't get on.

Luke Pommersbach is out of cricket for the forseeable future due to depression. I can't say I'm surprised. It's a shame following the massive season he had for the Bulls in 13/14.

Obviously sorry to hear that. Yet another cricketer with that problem.

The boy has had problems off the pitch all his life, but those are often closely related to much deeper concerns from a personal level. Hopefully he can get himself back and in gold colours before the end of his career. Good luck to him :salute
