Western Australia have nominated Tom Hogan, the former left-arm spinner, for the national selection panel following Allan Border's departure. Hogan, 48, played seven Tests and 16 ODIs before joining Trevor Hohns on a South Africa rebel tour in 1985-86, and became a Warriors selector in 2003.

Hogan told ABC Online he was thrilled to be given a chance to give Western Australia a voice on the panel. "The age of the Australian team is obviously getting up to that degree you would imagine that in the future there would be a changing of the guard, so there will be interesting times on selection," Hogan said.

Ray Bright, another Test spinner, is hopeful of getting Victoria's nomination. "There's a position up for grabs so I'd be only too happy to be the Victorian representative, if they see fit," Bright, who played 25 Tests from 1977 to 1986, said. Border resigned from his position of seven years on Wednesday.
