As per reports, Mitchell Johnson Sacked From Pakistan vs Australia Commentary Role Amid David Warner Row

Currently, former Australian teammates David Warner and Mitchell Johnson are involved in a bitter controversy. Johnson wrote in his column that Warner's selection for the Test series against Pakistan was because he was retiring after the series and not because of his form. The former pacer of Australia also insisted that chief selector George Bailey was too close to the players, and that was affecting his selection process. Following the controversy, the two former teammates were going to come face-to-face during the first Test in Pakistan, but it looks like that is not going to happen anymore.

Earlier, Johnson said that he would be part of the Triple M commentary team for the Test series. However, on Tuesday, the confirmed list of commentators released by the company did not include his name. It had the names of legends like Merv Hughes, Wasim Akram, and Mark Taylor.
