Australian cricketers Shane Watson, James Pattinson, Usman Khawaja and Mitchell Johnson are facing further ignominy after getting sacked by the management from the squad for the third Test against India in Mohali over disciplinary breach, as fans are leaving no stones unturned in mocking their suspensions on internet.
Watson had the perfect excuse to give Australia's selectors, according to some online jokesters, when he was in effect sent to stand in the corner with his hands on his head for not completing his cricket homework in India, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
The quartet had failed to complete written homework, set by head coach Mickey Arthur, to deliver a presentation, by email or in person, on what they brought to the team in the wake of last week's embarrassing defeat in Hyderabad, the paper said.
The move has become a laughing stock on social media, where the homework debacle has been given the online spoofing treatment.
Watson has borne the maximum brunt of the criticism, and no longer the baggy greens, Australia's cricketers are being portrayed to as the saggy greens, the paper added.
In one image doing the rounds, Watson is pictured sitting despondently at a desk in a school uniform, grasping a pencil with his head in his hands.
"Homework due Saturday," says a note on the blackboard behind Watson in the image.
Bart Simpson's famous blackboard gag, which features in the opening credits of each show, has been altered to repeatedly say: "I will not question Michael Clarke's authority".
Even former England skipper Michael Vaughan tweeted an image of a man he described as Australia's new number 3 i.e. Bill Gates, the paper reported.
The billionaire Microsoft founder is shown pointing to a screen, which says: "Why I Should Be The Australian Cricket Team's Powerpoint Coach.
Various other similar spoofs are running rounds on various social networking websites like Twitter, Facebook etc.
