    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.

    Would be gutted if Taylor ever went into politics. Can forgive his alleged admiration for Howard but I'd be too conflicted if my favourite Australian cricketer was a Liberal MP.

    Is the PM XI chosen by the PM though?

    Serious question, not just a pisstake. The only PM's in recent years that cared a lot about cricket was Menzies, Howard and to a lesser extent Hawke.

    Yep, but nobody had the heart to tell Howard that Bradman and Taylor were retired though. lol

    Serioulsy though, I believe that those who have been interested in cricket, Hawke and Howard, had a very marginal input into the team.

    Well I do know Hawke brought it back up after it was left derelict after Menzies retired. So they probably did have some input to the team.

    Unlikely Keating and Gillard did, however.
