Well, as most of you probably know by now, the Australian selector to get the axe is Merv Hughes.
Is it unfair that he has to go? In a way, I think so yes. As far as I know, the Australian Selectors Committee is —that's right — a committee; a group collectively responsible for selections. Like the Three Musketeers, it should be all for one and one for all: the entire panel — with the possible exception of Greg Chappell who's been a selector for like 5 seconds — should have done the right thing and resigned: considering the amount of talent in Australian cricket, it's an absolute bloody disgrace that we're now the #5 Test nation in the world.
Yes, of course, it's down to the individual players to perform. But when they don't — and they haven't — it is the task of the selectors to bring in a new guard. Wholesale, if necessary. But the selectors did not. And they should bear the full responsibility for that. Which, at the moment, they don't. They're sitting pretty. Well, except for Merv Hughes.
