The Australian Men's Cricket Team Is Advertising For A Selector

Cricket Australia needs a new selector for the national men's team, and there are two somewhat surprising facts arising from this.

The first is that CA hasn't just given the job to some bloke with the surname Marsh. Or even to Mrs Marsh from the old Colgate ads.

The second is that the job is advertised on popular job site seek.com.au.

For the record, it's listed in the $150k+ range. So happy days! You too could earn roughly twice the average Aussie wage for getting almost every important decision wrong.

Do you favour dropping fast bowlers who've been taking bagloads of wickets because some sports scientist who's never played the game told you about a thing called "bowler rotation"?

Excellent! This is the role for you.

Do you see positives in both Shaun and Mitchell Marsh which no Australian cricket fan has ever been able to fathom?

Fantastic! You'll fit in perfectly.

Can you pronounce the surname "Labuschagne" correctly?

You can? Hmmmm. You might be overqualified.

The position was made vacant with the retirement of Greg Chappell after the Ashes in England, and was first advertised a few days ago. The other two selectors remain in place, namely Chairman Trevor Hohns and coach Justin Langer.

Job applications close this Wednesday, October 23rd, so get in before you run out of time.

Run out. Hahahahaha. Those are  the sort of unbelievably lame jokes selectors make at selection meetings all the time. Did you laugh? The job's yours. When can you start?
