Selection chief Andrew Hilditch was unfairly turned on by fans and the media, Cricket Australia’s outgoing chairman Jack Clarke says. And Clarke has also defended the record of ex-coach Tim Nielsen, who quit the job last month.

James Sutherland lost a lot of respect by condoning the sacking of Simon Katich, which has left even the average cricket-lover breathless in disbelief.

I just about vaulted my delicious Beef Stroganoff dinner (so lovingly prepared by my wife) when I heard Andrew Hilditch proclaim that he and his team had done a very good job as selectors of the Australian Test side.
