Steve Waugh, the former Australia captain, has indicated a willingness to consider the role of selector after it emerged that the panels chairman Rod Marsh will vacate his post at the end of the season. Christian Arroyo Jersey .Series defeats in Sri Lanka and South Africa have renewed focus on the Australian teams performance, and there is tension in the air as Steven Smiths team look to rebound by winning at home.Marshs decision not to seek a contract renewal was announced after the South Africa ODI series ended in a 5-0 defeat, and he will not be the only man under pressure, should results go badly this summer.Pat Howard, the head of team performance, is also out of contract next year, and will be looking to recast the selection panel before that time. Darren Lehmann, the national team coach and selector, has had his contract renewed until 2019.Waugh, whose twin brother Mark has been a selector since 2014, said he would be open to joining the panel. Id listen to it if the opportunity came up, but there are a lot of things youve got to throw into the mix and see whether its the right time, Waugh told the Sydney Morning Herald. I think there are a lot of good cricket brains in Australia. No one has asked me, but Id listen to it.Aside from a brief chat during the 2015 World Cup, Waugh has seldom been seen near the Australian side since his 2004 retirement, but has remained a respected voice and was a member of the Argus review panel in 2011, alongside fellow former captains Mark Taylor and Allan Border.Waugh perceives 2016-17 to be a pivotal summer for Smith in particular. You always have a honeymoon period. The first six to 12 months, everything is fantastic. You make all the changes and they work, Waugh said. Then, the reality sets in and its a bit harder than that.I think losing that series in Sri Lanka probably was a bit of a shock to the system. I thought our fielding was very poor, which is unlike Australia, and that sort of set the benchmark for the rest of their cricket.[Smith] will be having a good look at himself, his captaincy style and which players he wants in the team. These six Tests in Australia could well define his captaincy going forward. I think if they have a good series in Australia and the team stays stable, and they respond to his leadership, then its great for him, but if things dont go well, it will be a challenging time for him, particularly after the last few losses. But, as a captain, the one thing about Steve Smith is hes amazing in the way he responds when things are down.Waugh also noted Smiths recent comments about the quiet nature of numerous members of the Test team and wanting to see a more boisterous group.Thats when hes got to get together with the selectors and say this is the type of player I want in the side, Waugh said. Im sure hell be talking to Rod Marsh and the selectors, saying, look, we need a bit more life, a bit more talk and attitude and a bit more Aussie Way. That may define some of the selections in the first Test. If he wants more talk out there, hes definitely got to get it. Blake Snell Jersey . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week. Daniel Robertson Jersey . From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. http://www.officialraysgearshop.com/Rays-Sergio-Romo-Kids-Jersey/ . Takahashi, who had a 10-point lead after the short program, received 268.31 points after the free skate to finish 15 points ahead of second-place Nobunari Oda. A new play on the tragic decline of former England and Northamptonshire batsman Colin Milburn will visit all 18 county cricket clubs in November.When the Eye Has Gone is a one-man show that has been written by James Graham-Brown, the former Kent and Derbyshire all-rounder turned playwright, and is being produced by Live Wire/Roughhouse Theatre in association with the Professional Cricketers Association.The play is set in the North Briton pub in Newton Aycliffe in County Durham on February 28 1990, the last day of Milburns life and the end of his performance as Jolly Ollie, the character he had developed to conceal his insecurities and suffering.Milburn, whose destructive career was cut short by the loss of the sight in his left eye in a car accident in May 1969, died in the North Briton car park aged 48 after he drifted into chronic alcoholism.All county clubs have agreed to support the PCA in putting on the play around the country, partly with the intention of helping current players appreciate the importance of planning for life after cricket.This new, exciting initiative focuses on what can happen when a playing career suddenly ends and a player struggles with a difficult transition, said Jason Ratcliffe, PCA Assistant Chief Executive. Ollies story puts this into sharp focus.When the Eye Has Gone, which is also supported by the Arts Council, will begin its nationwide tour at Somersets Taunton headquarters on November 1 and will visit all 18 county grounds before the final performance at Wantage Road, Millburns old Northampton stamping ground, on November 24. Mallex Smith Jersey.
