Jul 31, 2014:

Mark Waugh will attend his first meeting as a selector when Cricket Australia’s new National Selection Panel will meet to select the squad for the One-Day International (ODI) tri-series with Zimbabwe and South Africa. Waugh was primarily given the responsibility of selecting the limited-over’s squad. He will put his views forward to chairman Rod Marsh and fellow selectors Trevor Hohns and Darren Lehmann.

After retiring from international cricket Waugh was working as a television commenter. Recenly he has been included as a national selector in the newly formed selection pannel. And before attending his first selection meeting, he sounded quite energetic about the team. “There’s been some impressive performances and my note pad is full of notes. Obviously Phil Hughes’s 200 was excellent, Mitchell Marsh has looked really good with the bat and the ball, Kane Richardson has bowled well and Ben Cutting’s looked impressive,” Waugh told Cricket Australia’s official website.

Waugh said he had been impressed with the way Australia A’s players had sought to grasp those opportunities in the one-day quadrangular series with India, South Africa and CA’s National Performance Squad and as few players will not go to Zimbabwe, there are some vacant positions in the Zimbabwe bound Australian ODI team which are up for grab.

“There’s a few players not going to Zimbabwe – obviously David Warner’s not going, Shaun Marsh is injured so that’s probably two of the top four batsmen (who) aren’t there. That gives opportunities for other players and there’s a few fast bowlers that are injured as well. That wipes out a couple straight away so there’s definitely guys who are here that will come into the frame for Zimbabwe.”

Australia will tour the African nation after a long gap. This tour to Zimbabwe in a decade will feature a tri-nation series with the hosts and South Africa. This tour will provide selectors to try out different combinations in the limited over’s team, keeping in mind next year’s ICC Cricket World Cup, which will be played in Australia and New Zealand beginning next February.
