Rod Marsh resigned as the Chief Selector of Australia after the humiliating defeat in Hobart Test against South Africa. Australia now has lost last 5 Test Matches in a row and last two at the home soil. South Africa humiliated Australia as they won by an innings after defeating them convincingly at Perth in the first test.
Australian Skipper Steven Smith said previously that he is embarrassed to address the media after the defeat. However, the indications were made by him that there would be many changes after the defeat. Coach Darren Lehman has also indicated that only four players are confirmed for the next test that is going to be played at the Adelaide Oval. He has named Steven Smith and his deputy David Warner and pacers Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood for the next test.
Rod Marsh is the first person to resign aftermath of the defeat. It is expected that this is the first of many resignations and dismissals fro Cricket Australia. Australia lost all three matches against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka before playing South Africa at home to start off the summer.
It is not clear who will be named as the replacement of Rod Marsh for Cricket Australia. Mark Waugh may temporarily take up the responsibility. The names like Shane Warne, Mathew Hayden, and Steve Waugh are also floating for the head role. Marsh was a wicketkeeper and was with Selection Committee since 2011. He wished the best fortune for the team and considered his resignation to be in the interest of the team.
