While Shane Warne's manifesto for Australian cricket might seem radical to some, Gideon Haigh believes it has plenty in common with the current model.
Both rest on the assumption that a renewed period of cricket success is as far away as inserting the right names in a management diagram. Warne's names aren't even that new. Rod Marsh as selector? He is. Mark Taylor as chief executive? Mark Taylor, a director of CA until a couple of months ago, was one of the signatories to the Argus Review which underpins the current approach. A coach chosen on the basis of impressive performances against Australia? It was CA that took this step when they appointed Mickey Arthur eighteen months ago; would Stephen Fleming be so much better?
