Buchanan calls for a major overhaul.

BRIDGETOWN, BARBADOS - APRIL 28:  Ricky Pontin...Image by Getty Images via DaylifeIf anyone knew the Australian team intimately, then it has to be its former coach John Buchanan.

However, when asked to identify what caused Australia’s fall from grace, he had only this to say:

“There are broader issues there. They've been overlooked for a long period of time and now we're starting to see the outcomes of those. It's systemic and that's been the case for some period of time but while things were going well people chose to ignore them,”

Buchanan’s opaque answer casts serious doubts on Australia’s ability to regain its pomp. His rather neither here nor there answer makes one wonder whether it was contractual obligations or hopes of another stint as the coach of Australia that stopped him from being more forthcoming.

All said and done it appears that the Australian team is set to slide further before it stabilises.

I have a feeling he (Warne) is angling for the coach's job.
