Geoff Miller, England's national selector, has overseen the most settled regime in the post war history of English cricket. Daniel Narcross, of Spin magazine, asks him all about it.

We re looking for players not to be looking over their shoulder the whole time so they can instead focus on the team ethic, says Miller. We give the players honesty. We give them a fair crack. We give them consistency and continuity. It s no accident [that we have a settled side]. It s done by meticulous method. When I was playing, far better players than me didn t know if they d be in the side from one game to the next.
