In a shocking turn of events, drama has unfolded in Australian cricket, and the heat is on as former cricketer Mitchell Johnson takes center stage. The 42-year-old recently penned a column for The West Australian, expressing regret for referencing fans buying sandpaper at Bunnings. However, the controversy doesn’t end there.
Disgusting: Mitchell Johnson on George Bailey
Bailey’s response, made during the announcement of the Australian squad for the Pakistan series, did not sit well with Johnson. Bailey stated that he hoped Johnson was ‘Okay,’ implying a connection between Johnson’s critical column and mental health issues.
The drama doesn’t end there, as Johnson revealed on his podcast, “The Mitchell Johnson Cricket Show,” that he had not heard from current Australian players regarding the controversy. He did mention, though, that some past players had reached out, and “not too many were complimentary.”
As the cricketing community awaits the unfolding of this saga, with Johnson set to commentate on the Perth Test, the big question lingers: Will the rift between Johnson, Bailey, and Warner heal? The drama in Australian cricket has taken an unexpected turn, leaving fans and pundits alike on the edge of their seats, wondering about the future of these cricketing relationships.
