"The team was decided based on the captain".

The 31-year-old Warner also reportedly irked the entire Australian dressing room by partying after the scandal.

He, along with his skipper Steve Smith, and fellow opener Cameron Bancroft were sent back home with Cricket Australia naming Tim Paine as the captain for the fourth Test against the Proteas.

The fall-out from the scandal continues and Smith had already been replaced as captain of his IPL franchise, the Rajasthan Royals.

It comes after Warner was sent home from Australia's tour of South Africa for his role in the ball-tampering scandal that has engulfed the Baggy Greens. "The replacement (of Warner) may not be 100 per cent, but it will be close enough", said Saha at a "Meet the Press" event, hosted by the Calcutta Sports Journalists' Club, here, on Tuesday. "We did not take any decision in haste, it was a well thought out decision", he said.

Raiola is also said to be attempting to secure a new contract for Pogba, who now earns around £150,000 a week less than new arrival Alexis Sanchez.

SRH mentor and former India batting great V.V.S. Laxman has said the team management will wait for for Cricket Australia's decision on the player before commenting on his participation in the cash-rich T20 tournament. "If there is any instruction (from the team), then I will try those shots".

Asked whether the public outcry over the quantum of punishment to Smith and Warner, for their involvement in ball-tampering, was an over-reaction, Saha said, "I don't know the rules". If they do something that is not suitable, I don't think that does the sport any good.

"We have a good middle order with the likes of Kane Williamson, Deepak Hooda and Manish Pandey".

Saha added that he does not plan to follow skipper Virat Kohli in playing County cricket ahead of the all-important England series. "The plus point is that when batsmen have failed, bowlers have done well to win matches".
