Being a Selector is a thankless task, but a critical role in our cricket system and I am honoured to be appointed.


He's not telling any lies, I hope that not only being a selector he can offer some help and advice to regional batsmen.

Lets. get real ...the only players who perform consistently in regional cricket and have half decent test careers consistent are the Barbadians.
