Melbourne: Former skipper Steve Waugh has urged current captain Michael Clarke and his deputy Shane Watson to sort out their differences for the betterment of Australian cricket.
Watson was one of the four players to be suspended from the squad ahead of the third Test against India at Mohali for failing to submit performance reviews nine days ago, fuelling rumours of a possible rift between the all-rounder and Clarke.
Former Australian captains Waugh, Mark Taylor and Allan Border wanted the Test skipper to draw intensively on the advice of his deputy in assembling the 2011 Argus review of national team performance.
"Part of the Argus report we recommended was we wanted an increased role for the vice captain as we felt the captain and vice captain had to work together in Australia's rebuilding phase," Waugh told 'Courier Mail'.
"They will have to work and fix it up. To Michael and Mickey's credit they have said this is the way we want to do things, if you want to play for Australia you have to fall in line," said Waugh who won 41 of 57 matches as skipper during his 168-Test career.
