Australian selector shows F1M1 symptoms

Australian cricket continues to suffer from Foot in Mouth disease. And it is Jamie Cox's turn now:
"The decision to leave out Phil Hughes was the toughest thing I've had to do as a selector," Cox said. "But [Shane] Watson gave us real presence at the top of the order. Yeah, we made a mistake at the end (not playing Hauritz at The Oval) and no one's walking away from that. Our Ashes, up until that one very well-defined moment, went very well for us."
Read this again: "Yeah, we made a mistake at the end and no one's walking away from that. Our Ashes, up until that one very well-defined moment, went very well for us."

  • Cardiff went well for Cox and fellow selectors when Australia helped England draw the first Test. Mitchell Johnson was in no shape to be playing in that Test. No Stuart Clark to apply the pressure. You got it right Cox!

  • It went exceedingly well for Cox and fellow selectors at the Lord's when England bounced back to a 115 runs victory. I don't know how losing a Test match to England can be termed as "it went very well." Mitchell Johnson showed up again - like a reluctant passenger. No Stuart Clark. Cox and co screwed it up.

  • No Stuart Clark at Edgbaston. Cox and co dropped Hughes, and gave Shane 'Paris' Watson the opening batsman slot; the truth is, Watto was in as a bowling cover for Mitchell. From 5-168, England went on to score 376 runs in the first innings. Watson failed spectacularly 3-0-23-0 -- it well went for Cox.

  • 4th Test at Headingley: Clark in and makes a great impression. 10-4-18-3. Siddle cleans up the tail -- England bundled out for 102 in the first innings. Australia wins.

  • 5th Test at The Oval. England under pressure. Calls for Ramprakash to be drafted in to save the middle order. They pick a debutant in Trott to bat at 5. Cox and co retain a 'winning combination' - which meant Hauritz was to carry drinks...


CA: Please quarantine Cox and fellow selectors and send them home.
