Sydney: Former Australian coach Mickey Arthur has revealed that a fall-out with former vice-captain Shane Watson had inspired the decision to suspend Shane Watson, along with James Pattinson, Usman Khawaja and Mitchell Johnson from the third Test in India.

According to news.com.au, Arthur expressed that his relationships with player were outstanding, except with Watson, who was one of the guys he lost.

The former coach said that India was where it started going wrong, when the players were suspended and if he sat back and thought if he would have done it again, he probably would.

However, Arthur said that he felt disappointed about how it all happened but a lot of big decisions needed to be taken.
