An independent chairperson is being sought, preferably from a corporate background, to assess the wider problems in the game’s structure in Australia that led to their crushing 1-3 home series defeat against England.
Former captain Steve Waugh has been mooted as a possible overseer or contributor in the review, according to Australian Associated Press. According to the report, CA power brokers will deliberate on how to get to the bottom of the Ashes mess, besides endorsing detailed plans for next summer’s city-based Twenty20 competition which could cause the greatest shift in Australian cricket since World Series Cricket revolution of late 1970s.
“What we’re keen on is that someone external with expertise that would allow them to manage a review, and we’re looking at a range of people across corporate Australia,” a CA spokesman was quoted as saying in the report. “We’re looking for someone with some grunt, who can give the review the credibility it needs, and who can make recommendations that are respected.”
