'Erratic' Johnson slammed after Warriors exit

'Erratic' Johnson slammed after Warriors exit Star halfback Shaun Johnson has been slammed for being egotistical and erratic following his stunning move from the New Zealand Warriors to the Cronulla Sharks. New Zealand's Sunday Star Times writer David Long took aim at the former Warriors talisman, saying that his exit from the club was fuelled by his ego. Prior to his departure, Johnson was the highest paid player in Warriors history after signing a two-year deal worth $1.1 million per season in April 2017. "Throughout Johnson's time at the Warriors he was held up as the club's poster boy, with the talent to bring the club success," Long wrote.

Pant was early into his innings, but that did not dissuade him from attempting a wild slog sweep off Pat Cummins with India teetering at 5-110.

A rainy day at the European Boys Team Championship 2009. Just before 9:30 PM all players finished their first round at the EBTC 2009.

The Fox Cricket commentary saw the funny side of the shot, with former Australian cricketer Kerry O'Keefe providing some choice words.

"That was going to the Northern Territory border," O'Keefe exclaimed.

"Village cricketers would be ashamed of that!

"At 5-110, that's not my shot of choice, I've got to say."

Pant eventually reached 25 before being found caught behind off Nathan Lyon, but his shot symbolised the Indian batting effort on a day one Adelaide Oval wicket that had something in it for the bowlers.

Rahul was first to go with a loose drive attempt off Josh Hazlewood finding Aaron Finch in just the second over of the day, before Vijay and Rahane were also dismissed in similar fashion.

Kohli might count himself slightly unlucky given Usman Khawaja's terrific catch, but he too opened up the possibility for the catch to even take place by flashing his blade at a wide delivery.

However, the loose strokeplay wasn't exclusively off Australia's pace attack, with Sharma's attempted hoick off Nathan Lyon perhaps the ugliest dismissal of the day.

The 31-year-old appeared to be well-set on 37 before attempting a wide slog across the line, which was easily caught in the deep by Marcus Harris.
