Australia’s former Test batsman Ed Cowan criticized Australian player handling technique after withdrawing from the national team of Nic Maddinson from the domestic cricket.
This week Maddinson player will miss from the New South Wales Sheffield Shield match which played against Queensland team. Australian Cricket Board and Cricket NSW said he is still not available in the squad due to “personal reason,”
The 25-year-old was one of the shocking of young batsmen to debut for Australia over the home summer after selectors shook up for performing well in the South Africa Test series.

In the last test against Pakistan, Maddinson struggled to score in the fighting Test series. In the last three match test series, he scored only 27 runs where Peter Hands come, and Matt Renshaw played a vital role as an opener during these Test matches.
On Thursday the 34-year-old Cowan told local reporter, “If they’re going to churn through players then Cricket Australia need to be aware that there’s going to be some burn and that they’re going to have to work extra hard on the welfare side to look after guys that they spit out the other side.”

“I don’t think the Australian test team manages any exit very well, to be honest,” he added.
“From my personal experience it feels like you’re left at a train station, you look up, and the train is five stops (gone) flying down the tracks.”
“First and foremost it’s just pure disappointment,” Cowan said.
“I think for some guys it can be a relief because the spotlight of international cricket is very bright and very harsh and if you’re not playing well then sometimes you’re relieved that you can be taken back from that.
“Then it’s a question of time healing the wound and wanting deep inside to get better and reclaim that place.
“That whole process doesn’t happen overnight. It can take a season, four weeks, sometimes two seasons.”
Maddinson was a “good spirits” said that one by Cowan.
“He’ll come back stronger when he chooses to really flick that switch of desire wanting to play, and we’ll support him through that,” the 34-year-olg Cowan said.
