Arthur says 'back-chat' and 'attitude' a problem

Australia coach Mickey Arthur on Wednesday said a team culture including unacceptable "back-chat" and "attitude" forced him to controversially axe four players for the next Test in India. "When we sat down as a leadership group and made these tough decisions I knew it would polarise public opinion, but internally I certainly know we've made the absolute right decision," he said on the Cricket Australia website. "Being late for a meeting, high skinfolds (body fat), wearing the wrong attire, back-chat or giving attitude are just some examples of these behavioural issues that have been addressed discreetly but continue to happen," he said.AFP
