... I support the selection policy, even tho I have a problem with a few of the selected. However, once this policy is adhered to going forward, I will work with it.

I call this the Kieran Powell Selection Policy.

Unless someone is injured or retired they will be retained to maintain continuity.

After this tour, nobody can complain that they didn't get a fair run.

However this breeds the opportunity for someone to make a lil 50-60 in the 2nd test and then retain themselves for another 10 tests.
