Australian spin wizard Shane Warne has said that former Australia coach Mickey Arthur’s claim of A$4 million against Cricket Australia sounds like sour grapes.

Comparing Arthur’s claim to the famous expression from Aesop’s Fables, Warne said: “He did the best he could do and put his heart and soul into it [coaching the Australian side] so it [the claim] sounds (like) a bit of sour grapes to me. If that’s your gripe, go behind closed doors, but I think he should sit back and be quiet as A$4 million is out of order.”

South African-born Mickey Arthur has sued Cricket Australia for alleged racial discrimination.

Warne even took a dig at Arthur’s infamous ‘homework-gate’ scandal which led to the axing of four Australian players including star all-rounder Shane Watson.

“It is very disappointing that he wants money and perhaps he should go back to homework-gate and start writing some lines and send some papers to Cricket Australia,” Warne said.
