    I just hope Langer is better at coaching than he is at maths.

    Jeez, JL/CA are coming across as being totally inept

    Literally all they had to say wrt selections is "this is the direction we've chosen but others might come into contention for next summer with good domestic performances blah blah blah"

    Bringing up incorrect stats, irrelevant analysis, etc just makes them look like fools

    What's more, they are doubling down on idiocy by conducting an interview process for the choice of a vc

    Here's an idea

    Determine which players are guaranteed selection for both this series and next summer

    That leaves Lyon & Starc

    Congratulations Nathan

    Unfortunately, it seems inevitable that MMarsh will get the job which will look really stupid if he fails in the UAE as it will be impossible to justify his selection thereafter

    His stint as batting coach coincided with a period of horrible batting and our loss of the Ashes in 2010...

    amazing that CA went and looked at the mess that was the aus team setup and went "actually, what we need is more yes-man behaviour cultish devotion to a nostalgic golden age and less attention paid to merit"
    citoyens, vouliez-vous une révolution sans révolution?

    Wouldn't surprise me if his answer to every batting-related issue from his players was "easy, just watch the ball more" over and over.

    "But coach it's not working I keep getting edges"
    "You're obviously not watching the ball hard enough"

    To be granted a call up to the test XI as a bowler, awesome. But to debut in UAE is garbage, setting up to fail. It’s the kind of crap we expect from the selection panel.
    Batting wise Maxi obviously can’t catch a break, bloke must be being saved to get his technique honed for an important home series. But I doubt our selectors are so kind.

    The management of the Australian cricket team is so amateur it is amazing. When Merv Hughes was a selector he admitted he didn’t even watch Australia play overseas - because he didn’t have Foxtel

    I feel sorry for Burns. Poor bloke flies to South Africa after sandpapergate and shows some ticker as the Aussies get rolled, then they don't even pick him

    If true, yikes!
    This is pathetic. Really embarrassed to support Straya right now.

    Burns is actually alright but for his problems against spin. Typical Australian player really.

    I called Langer's reign the Fourth Reich when he came to power.

    At least Hitler got off to a good start.
