Unexpectedly, Cricket Australia has banned former Australian bowler Mitchell Johnson from speaking at two public events.

According to News Corp, Johnson was not allowed to attend the two guest speaking engagements that were slated to take place at Perth stadium during Pakistan’s Test match against Australia, according to Cricket Australia. It follows Johnson’s controversial column in which he questioned David Warner’s selection for the Test team and the reason behind his “hero’s sent-off,” even though Warner was involved in “the sandpaper gate,” the 2018 ball-tampering incident in South Africa.

“Although Mitchell is a highly renowned bowler in Australia, we believed that it would be better for everyone if he was not the guest speaker at the CA functions on this particular occasion”.

Johnson provided commentary on the game on Triple M radio, but at first there were rumors that he had been replaced because his name wasn’t on the list of analysts that the radio station had originally released. He did, however, spend his time providing commentary for them.
In his podcast, The Mitchell Johnson Show, Johnson discussed his regrets regarding the column he wrote following the backlash against it.

Johnson remarked, “There was one thing I wasn’t really happy with.” It escaped my notice at the time. As I read the article, I kind of followed along. The parts about “sandpaper” and “Bunnings” Most likely disgusting. Most likely, there was no need to mention that.
