    Two questions

    1. Do all selectors watch every domestic game in this country?
    2. Do Australian coaches and team management watch all (or most) international cricket matches?

    Who is your dadd-i and what does he do?

    a) I'd say no to this, they are part time essentially, but they would talk to the coaches and have decent scouts to feed them information. Watching too much wouldn't be the silver buttet.

    b) No again, but they would once again have a network of people to whom they could get decent enough information you would think.

    I'm starting to think that they use those safety knives otherwise they'd bleed out over breakfast, let alone do their jobs properly.

    1. Nah, but they should at least follow it to a good extent.
    2. Dunno, probably not. They should though.

    Merv Hughes wasn't even required to have Foxtel. I know he's been sacked but I think that says it all.

    To be honest i doubt many selection panels worldwide actually watch the players regularly. We are lucky in England that Miller does get round the grounds, and i know this as my dad is a groundhopper and sees him all over the country. It stinks that people with such important well paid jobs don't do them properly.

    Must be hard to watch every single match that takes place. Reckon they're just taking a gamble or two. No one would say too much if it pays off though.

    How would it be hard to watch every game that is taking place? Up until about a couple of weeks ago there were 4 selectors. At most there would be 3 games going on at one time. That's more than enough selectors to cover each game. They're just lazy and until they are held accountable for their performance they will continue to be so.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    The English selectors from what I know make an effort to see every county game they can, even over test matches.
