Dear Rod Marsh and the other selectors.
I think that includes Mark Waugh, but not John Inverarity. I’m not that clear on who the other selectors are really. That’s pretty funny, because I’m also not clear on how you get selected these days.
Rod, you told me to make runs in the Shield. I averaged over 70 last year and you didn’t pick me.
Rod, you told me to make runs for Australia A. In my last 5 innings, I’ve made 100, 200, 50 and 50. Ok, I made a 21 in there as well, but I got a crap LBW decision.
You still didn’t pick me.
I get the feeling that making 200 for Australia is a bad thing.
Jason Gillespie made one and you sacked him. Same with Brad Hodge. Maybe I should have just made 199? Actually, scrap that thought. You sacked Matthew Elliot for doing that.
What’s the point of making runs Rod?
Do I need to change my name to Marsh? It seems to have worked for Shaun and Mitch.
My name is Hughes. The same as a former Australian Test captain. Are you marking me down because he cried on TV? That’s not my fault.
This time last year I was batting along side Ashton Agar. If it wasn’t for me hanging around in that innings, Agar wouldn’t even be remembered. Where’s my thanks for that?
I’m 25 years old and I’ve already made 8,000 First Class runs. I’ll have made more than Sachin by the time I’m 35. I can either make them for Australia or the Redbacks. Your choice.
Remember when you started how they called you “Iron Gloves” because you couldn’t catch? Lucky for you, the selectors stood by you.
Perhaps you could do the same for me?
Doesn’t matter anyway. I’ve given Srinivasan a call and he reckons I can play for England given I was born in New South Wales. Wales falls under the banner of the ECB apparently. They probably should change their name to the EWCB. Why is the “W” silent? Are they embarrassed about Wales?
Stuff you and your iron clacker Rod.
I wasn’t unlucky like you said in that press conference. The reality is you guys just make up the rules as you go.
All the best
