After a summer of bewildering selection decisions, the most controversial being the omission of Usman Khawaja, Chairman of Selectors Rod Marsh has confessed to trolling cricket fans.
In a startling confession, Marsh said annoying cricket fans was essentially the role of all Australian selectors and had a long and proud history.
“I’ve been laughing my head off at you all going ballistic on Facebook and Twitter. I even got an account on Peach just to see if anyone was going off tap on that,” said the former Australian wicketkeeper.
“Are you on Peach? No? Yeah, it’s been pretty quiet on there.”
Marsh said he’s been really happy with how he’d been going of late.
“Leaving Usman out has been huge but the real salt in the wound has been picking Shaun Marsh relentlessly.”
“I’ve been less impressed with Shane Watson. I thought making him T20 Captain was the greatest troll of all time but then he goes and scores a century. Still not ever game is going to be a dead rubber, it will work out.”
Asked why he enjoyed annoying Australian cricket fans so much Marsh replied “some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.”
