Cricket: Australian chief selector Marsh quits after Test defeats

SYDNEY, , (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 16th Nov, 2016 ) - Chairman of selectors Rod Marsh has stepped down with immediate effect after a humiliating run of five heavy Test defeats, cricket Australia said Wednesday.

The former wicketkeeping great, 69, quit amid recriminations about the poorly performing national team which crashed to a first-ever home series defeat to South Africa on Tuesday.

"This is my own decision and no one within Cricket Australia has pressured me or even suggested that I should do this," Marsh said in a statement.
