Dutch cricketer Tim Gruijters has accused his team of cheating to get another player into the team.

Dhaka - The Australian team's Twitter joke has cheered up bowler Mitchell Johnson after a foot injury ruled him out of the ICC World Twenty20.

Feared pace bowler Johnson was ruled out of the tournament with a toe infection on Sunday, dealing a blow to Australia's hopes.

Johnson cut his right big toe after the third Test win over South Africa and after infection set in, medication was unable to bring it under control, Cricket Australia said.

The ICC's Twitter account posted the following picture featuring several of Johnson's team-mates along with this message:

"Hey Mitch, hope your toe is feeling better, Pooch is hungry."

The photo features the signatures of Johnson's team-mates Glenn Maxwell, Aaron Finch, Cameron White and James Faulkner.

Johnson tweeted this message in reply:

"@ICC @Gmaxi_32 @AaronFinch5 @CameronWhite152 @FaulknerC25 love it boys thanks!! A bit of toe jam never hurt anyone!"


"A little toe jam never hurt anyone." (ICC via Twitter)
