Of discipline and punctuality..

Laxman, unbeaten on 42, and Sreesanth, chief wrecker with 5 for 40, were a little tardy in joining the team bus that was to take the players from their hotel Sandton Sun to the Wanderers, ten minutes away.

But the team rules cannot, apparently, be bent for anybody. And the rule, a team official says, is that if 8:16am is the time for the bus to leave, then even if the players are standing in the foyer at that point of time, they will not be allowed to enter the bus.
Greg Chappell wasn’t going to let discipline be compromised even for his overnight stars. So, the bus left without them and the duo hired a taxi that took about 10-15 minutes to pick up its illustrious customers

I'm all for discipline and punctuality. But can't help wonder if the coach would have done the same thing if the hotel was about an hour away from the ground. Would he have then risked having Laxman, the over-night batsman get timed out?
