As an England fan, and a die hard one at that, I'm getting more disappointed as the weeks go on. I don't actually mind the fact that we are losing becuae we are just a 'good' team, not a great one by any means. We have a new captain and are away from home, all that adds up to a tough tour.

As has been said by @jamielsn15 the players are letting us down a bit, this Duckett incident was on a night there is no curfew, so any adult team away from home should make their own rules, which England by and large do.

The first time they are out after midnight this happens.

And it's all so trivial, stupid incidents.....

Who here can honestly say they've never done something a bit daft after a few drinks?

I'll put my hand up and say I've poured a beer over a teammates head before. I deeply regretted it shortly after, as I realised I'd have been better off drinking it :(

Ive done some silly things in my life but I agree completely. Yes it doesnt look great but if they want people to act like adults for me you have to treat them like it. If this was happening on another tour other than aus no one would care

The only thing he should be fined for is wasting a beer!

Would you pour a pint/a cup of coffee/tea/water over someone head at work?

No. It's a work trip, where your employers have told everyone to be on their best behaviour because two colleagues have got into trouble on a night out just before the trip and a third made a prat of himself at the start of the trip.

In isolation it wouldn't a big deal but given all the surrounding circumstances then it's impossible to come to any other conclusion than Duckett is a complete moron.

I can't imagine this being a "friendly" event. You pour drinks over your peer, or over someone junior. Jimmy is a veteran and the teams Vice Captain! Seems like dunket was just being a total (No Swearing Please) to his senior?

Not a school trip it' could be  judged as bringing  your employers name into disrepute seen people dismissed for it.

But the ECB seem to be doing a perfectly good job of that themselves...

On the field, Jimmy talks a lot and seems like a tough guy but he is probably a mouse in real life. How is it that Ben Ducket could get that thought in his head that he could pour a drink over Jimmy's head? Incredible! Is there no hierarchy in the England XI? Root must be a weak leader, I don't see it happening under Cook's tenure. Benji would've (rightfully) decked Ducket.
