Ashes: Ashley Giles slams immature England
Ashley Giles says he would have been tempted to send home some of England's players for bad behaviour during their Ashes tour of Australia
Ashley Giles says he would have been tempted to send home some of England's players for bad behaviour during their Ashes tour of Australia. Former spin bowler Giles, who played 54 Test matches for England and later worked as a selector, believes some of the current crop of players have lacked maturity. "I think I would have been very tempted (to send some home)," the 44-year-old told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme.
"There comes a time when there's enough water gone under the bridge, a lot of it not very nice water, you have to make a stand and we're probably past that point. The whole thing sheds a bad light on England cricket but I think what we have to remember is these guys are extremely talented cricketers and they've got a great gift in what they do. "It doesn't make them extremely mature individuals. There's work to do there."
