Peter Roebuck oh dear:
The Ashes | Cricket | Let's drop bad attitude to professionalism
'What was the use of removing Merv Hughes? He was only part of the group that took an ageing team to fifth in the rankings. By the look of things, his gruff commonsense is missed.'
True about Tubby Taylor being ill equipped to conduct a review of cricket in Australia though - I've lost all faith in him. Thought he'd be the next Liberal PM, but his off with fairies as one of the CA directors who brought us:
- Split innings cricket
- Prioritising Champions League over preparing for a Test against India
- Cutting the Shield final
- City-based T20 franchises (Geelong, Brisbane etc).
CA is just as bad and complacent as Timmy Nielsen and Hack Hilditch.
As you can tell, I'm a ball of rage.

As a constructive contribution, I put forward a joint ticket of AB and Tugga Waugh to run all aspects of Australian cricket - coaching, administration, marketing etc.
The future of the PM's XI game would be bright though with Tub in the chair.
