Coaching great Leigh Matthews on Australia’s cricket culture

Coaching great Leigh Matthews has weighed in on Cricket Australia’s ‘culture’ crisis.

Matthews told Macquarie Sports Radio, “Culture’s sort of one of those more modern wanky type words.

“I always think any organisation, I don’t care whether it’s business or sport, you want to have respect and trust flowing through the organisation.

“Respect everyone else and the role they play in the organisation and the trust they’re going to be putting the group first.

“But in sports teams, the respect that comes, which is important, you’ve got to respect your organisation, you’ve got to care for your organisation.

“The performance of your team in a sporting organisation seems to be where that all comes from.”
