Impeded by injury, selectorial
whim and an unsettled place in the batting order, his Test batting average of 23.
DYSLEXIA PROMISING sporting careers have been cut short by many things: an inopportune injury, an over-fondness for partying, selectorial
In the bad old 1990s - a period when Ted Dexter turned selectorial
dithering into an art form - almost everyone in the team would have declared their first loyalty to Essex or Lancashire rather than England.
Durham University graduate Compton (a groin injury stopped him playing first-class cricket for them) is intense at the best of the times and the selectorial
spotlight was shining brighter on him than the Riverside floodlights.

Having forcefully made clear his lack of status in the selectorial

Summit talks with Irvine convinced Dawson to stay and after four years of selectorial
hokey-cokey - in, out, in, out, the former England Under 21 is now happy to commit his mediumterm future to the club.
In only the fourth women's T20 international at the MCG, vast acreage of the imposing stadium was deserted as England batted first under clear skies, four injury absences from a squad of 15 affording little in the way of selectorial
options, the report added.
In contrast Australia's battling has been riddled with inconsistency and selectorial
tinkering; the selectors felt compelled to call up Chris Rogers, a 35-year-old with just one previous test appearance behind him, to the Ashes squad, and he is likely to open alongside Watson, who flew home from the recent India tour in disgrace after the high-profile 'homework' episode.
Now his immediate future, as is the case with any professional sportsman, is at the mercy of all sorts of factors: form, fitness, selectorial
In such a scenario, which four foreign players will feature in their XI will be a selectorial
