Kapil Dev livid over Australia's decision to send back Johnson
Former India captain Kapil Dev has blasted Australia for calling back pacer Mitchell Johnson to prepare for the upcoming Ashes series.
“It looks like the Australians don’t have any value for this one-day series. It is strange that they sent their fast bowler (Johnson) back just before the final match of the series.
Next time, we too should pull out our main bowler before the end of the series. How can they do this?” he asked.
Johnson, who celebrated his 32nd birthday on Saturday was the highest wicket-taker (7) for Australia in the series.
In five matches, Johnson gave away 234 runs in 41.1 overs at an economy rate of 5.68. Australia play their first Test against England on November 21.
