What sort of review would you carry out?

'Tis the season for navel-gazing. Let's indulge

1. Your first-class system has been churning out batsmen clueless about playing the moving ball, the short ball, the spinning ball… in short any ball that does anything. What do you suggest in your report?

2. Your away record is appalling. What do you do?

3. What will be the title of your review?

4. Your selectors' decisions have been ridiculous enough to be featured on Page 2. How do you rectify that?

5. Will you hold the captain responsible for losses?

6. How do you solve the problem of frequent injuries?

7. What about scheduling?

8. Would you restructure the administration as well?

9. Will the Twenty20 league phenomenon feature in your review?

10. What message will your review send out?

  • Why Australia should pick Steve Magoffin
    Michael Jeh: If the selectors are willing to think out of the box, they could do worse than include the uncapped fast bowler, now with Sussex
  • Test match drama can't be beaten
    Mark Nicholas: The way this Ashes has developed it is impossible know what will follow. Every moment should be savoured
  • Win some, lose some, and a duck tango
    Ask Steven: Also: fastest to 400 wickets, most wickets by a double-centurion, and Aaqib and Shoaib's parallel careers
  • Clarke's weaknesses against spin
    Aakash Chopra: The Australian captain is considered world-class against spin, but his numbers in Asia suggest he has some chinks in his armour
  • Two sides to the Haddin case
    Russell Jackson: For all the emotion tied to his family situation and the depth of his contribution to the Test side, he was seriously out of form with the bat
