Cricket Australia boss says selection panel needs to work on communication






CRICKET Australia chief executive James Sutherland has admitted the new selection panel needs to improve its communication with the public – as he confirmed Brad Haddin had been dropped.

In the wake of the Brad Haddin resting farce, Sutherland claimed communication with the players was better but that had not been the case more widely.

“I don’t know the specific detail on it,” Sutherland said. “Looking back on it, something clearly has gone awry there and that’s something we need to be clearer on.”

At the beginning of the one-day series new chairman of selectors John Inverarity announced that Haddin, 34, had been rested for the first three matches so that the panel could look at Wade, 24.

However Haddin came out on radio the next day and said that he had been dropped.

And when a revised one-day squad was announced for matches today and on Sunday there was no mention of Haddin, who began a Sheffield Shield match for NSW In Perth today.

“Brad’s very aware of the position,” Sutherland said. “He’s had a number of conversations with the selectors, particularly the national selector (Inverarity) over the last few weeks and probably as soon as just over 24 hours ago.

“He knows that he’s out of the team on a performance basis and he’s under no illusions as to where he sits in selectors’ eyes.

“I think there has been a very strong focus over the last few months for the national selection panel to communicate very clearly to the players.

“Personally I understand over the past couple of weeks there might have been some uncertainty in the public space about this particular selection.

“I think we can do better and we need to do better in that regard then we will.”
