It is definitely a strange move.
But in some ways, it is justified.
Any team on a loosing streak does go through similar crisis.
Ganguly, Dhoni and Sehwag sagas in Indian cricket were similar.
It was just that the team management did not take such drastic steps while Cricket Australia puts cricket above stardom and is able to do so.
