Cricket Australia is reported to have said that it will make a “significant announcement about a current Australian player” at 5pm AEST (1130 IST).
It could be about the retirement of Brad Hogg. But then Hogg has already announced his retirement plans separately!
So speculation is rife that Matthew Hayden will receive a wrap (Edit: Sic! I meant to write “rap”) on his wrists from Cricket Australia — and so he should, in my view, for calling Harbhajan Singh an “obnoxious little weed”; a story that has received some discussion on this blogsite.
Matthew Hayden is also reported to have said that he would love to meet Indian pace bowler, Ishant Sharma, in a boxing ring!
Now, it is quite likely that Matthew Hayden will indeed receive his wish of being in a boxing ring soon! Unfortunately, he could well be facing off with his employers! Time will tell…
Edit: Matthew Hayden’s obnoxious comment is available here as an audio clip.
