Not even a phone call: Chris Lynn
“I don’t mind being dropped (but) to not make a phone call, that lack of communication is very poor,” Lynn told AAP at Kayo’s summer of cricket launch.
“And it has probably been poor for a number of years now in Australian cricket.
“There have been plenty of scenarios where blokes have found out online; it’s not that hard to pick up the phone and make a call.”
