Marsh to quit as national selector for Aussies


Chairman of selectors for Australia Rod Marsh will not seek an extension to his current contract with Cricket Australia, it has been revealed.

The former Test player will end his tenure in 2017 when his current contract expires.

Cricket Australia spokesperson said: “We can confirm that Rod Marsh has decided not to continue on in his role as national selector once his contract expires in June 2017.

“At this stage no decision has been made on a replacement.”

At the end of the current season the selection panel of Marsh, Trevor Hohns, Mark Waugh and coach Darren Lehmann will be dissolved and replaced with a new panel.

Marsh has served as a selector since 2011 and has chaired the panel since 2014 during which time Australia briefly returned to the number one Test ranking and won the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015.
