Mickey Arthur says age problems still remain in team
Sydney: Former Australian coach Mickey Arthur has said the current team was an old one now.
Australian team features two 36-year-olds and five others over 31, which is not necessarily the start of a new golden era.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Arthur, who said he was filled with `joy` about Australia`s Ashes success but added that the rebuilding process he tried to make a priority would have to be revisited soon.
In an interview with the BBC, Arthur said that it was an old team now. Chris Rogers is 36, so who is that next opening batsman? Is George Bailey good enough? Where does Shane Watson bat?
He added that the same questions that he had during his time are still there today. Who is the next wicketkeeper?
Is it Matthew Wade because Brad Haddin is 36? Ryan Harris has got probably one season left in him, Peter Siddle is now getting close to the wrong side of 30, Mitchell Johnson , Arthur added.
