A report in the Sydney Morning Herald stated: “Details have emerged of a cultural breakdown in Australian cricket with Clarke forced to redress a slew of problems including Test stars being overweight and turning up late to training and team meetings.”
The six acts of indiscipline were:
1 Showing up late for team meetings and training sessions
2 Missing medical and physiotherapy appointments
3 Sleeping in and holding up the team bus.
4 Wearing the wrong uniforms
5 Failing to consistently complete CA health and well-being forms
6 Recording fluctuating skin-folds, with some players deemed overweight
