Mitchell Johnson criticizes Cricket Australia for excluding him from awards event

1 min read

Mitchell Johnson reacted furiously to Cricket Australia (CA) inviting him to an awards night just a week after the organization canceled two of his speaking engagements. The retired fast bowler’s guest speaking gigs were axed during the first Test in Perth last week following a controversial column about David Warner and chief selector George Bailey. Despite keeping quiet after being stood down from the paid talks, Johnson took to social media to express his frustration with the invitation to the 2024 Australian Cricket Awards, posting a screenshot of the invite and criticizing CA for the inconsistency in their actions. In the explosive article for the West Australian, Johnson criticized Warner’s “hero send-off” and Bailey’s conflict of interest, admitting that the column was personally motivated after receiving messages from the two earlier in the year. Warner, in response, refused to engage with Johnson’s comments, stating that Johnson is entitled to his opinions.
