Former Australia spinner Shane Warne defended coach Mickey Arthur despite his team's poor show in the ongoing Test series against India.

“Making Arthur a scapegoat for the poor performance of the Australian team would be unfair on him. The entire team is responsible for this debacle,” Warne said.

Warne also supported Arthur and team management’s decision to axe four key players for not completing a presentation. “If you see the incident in isolation you will find the punishment a bit hard. But I am sure there must have been many more things in the lead-up to the expulsion.”
