Cricket Australia Robs Dubai

There are a lot of things regarding the upcoming Pakistan-Australia series that the Dubai public is excited about.

Watching a match in the ring of fire for the first time ever.

Watching the first ever 20-20 to be played on UAE soil.

Watching David Warner in action.

Most of the people I spoke to are looking forward to witnessing Warner, more than any other player, in action.

Ricky Ponting and Mitchell Johnson were the other 2 favorites on the must-watch list of the Dubai fans.

But Cricket Australia has robbed Dubai of the chance of witnessing Ponting and Johnson in action.

The squad they announced is very much a 2nd string side and one that is a comback trail for Brett Lee, Andrew Symonds, Shane Watson, and Shaun Marsh.

No Ponting.

No Johnson.

No Mike Hussey.

No Siddle.

No Cameron White.

I'm not sure if this squad will remain the same for the 20-20, but if it is, then we have also been robbed of the David Warner spectacle!

Well maybe we'll witness Pakistan win a few matches this way.
