It shows how Australia is making the players disciplined.

<!--articleExtras-wrap--> <bod> </bod>BOYS will be boys, but when they are messy and do not clean up after themselves they are kicked out of the Australian Institute of Sport.
Yesterday Mark Cosgrove, 23, hailed as the next great Australian batsman, and two other scholarship holders, David Warner, 20, a middle-order batsman from NSW, and Aaron Finch, 20, from Victoria, were evicted from their Brisbane institute residences and will be left behind when the centre of excellence tours India from August 10.
It is believed the standard of hygiene and cleanliness in their rooms and in a common area was a source of frustration for cleaners at the new, privately managed centre.

cosgrove got banned a year or 2 ago i think it was from the SACA, (south australia cricket association) and wasn't allowed to played state cricket for south australia until he lost a certain amount of weight (not sure if he was still allowed to play club cricket or not). he cameback after a month having lost a few kilograms though he still needs to lose some weight imo.

I don't think our players are indisciplined. They are quite ok.
