VIDEO: Taiwan TV cartoon mocks Aussie cricket 'homeworkgate' scandal
Australian cricket brought scorn upon itself when coach Mickey Arthur axed four players from his Test squad for refusing to do their homework. England fans reacted with tittering glee. The news, it seems, even amused the natives of Taiwan.
Taiwan TV made this potted cartoon explanation of the crisis, lamenting how Australian cricket's former global dominance has declined alarmingly into the current predicament.
The Aussies' fall from their heyday of world domination and David Boon airbourne drinking antics, to the soft, non-Powerpointing, in-fighting capitulation of the modern era is all documented in this hilarious clip.
The depiction of Shane Warne as a reformed poodle-walking, urbane metrosexual is particularly wonderful.
