Geoff Miller's tenure as England selector comes to an end this winter. Mike Selvey, in the Guardian, writes the tireless work done by Miller in the last five years will leave a tough-to-fill vacancy in the selection panel.
Miller's retirement and Whitaker's elevation means there is a vacancy on the selection panel and a personal view is that he should not have an association with a county (as Ashley Giles was when first appointed); nor be involved with the media, unless prepared to give it up; nor have connections with the management of players. It will not be an easy spot to fill.
