Sydney: Former captain Allan Border has slammed Matt Renshaw for retiring midway through his innings due to a "stomach bug" and felt the young Australian opener had to be "half dead" to be back in the dressing room on Day One of the first Test against India yesterday.
However, Renshaw's approach did not go down well with Border.
The opener came back into the middle and ended with a fighting 68 in his first ever Test match in Asia. "I hope he's lying on the table in there half dead," Border told Fox Sports.
"Otherwise, as captain, I would not be happy. I don't think I've ever seen that before. He's obviously just got an upset stomach to some degree and he was probably trying to use the situation where David Warner had just been dismissed to race off the ground and go to the toilet," he added.
