Dodemaide to sit on National Selection Panel

Former fast bowler and now senior administrator Tony Dodemaide has been appointed to a position of the National Selection Panel.


Dodemaide will join Chair George Bailey and Head Coach Justin Langer as part of the new look three-man panel.


Dodemaide played 10 Test matches and 24 ODIs for Australia as well as 93 Sheffield Shield games for Victoria before turning to administration as MCC Head of Cricket at Lord’s, CEO of Western Australian Cricket and then the long-term boss of Cricket Victoria.


“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a contribution not only in the immediate tournaments and series but also to help chart the medium to longer term course of the Australian men’s teams,” Dodemaide said.


“I can’t wait to offer my experience in cricket as a player and in management to assist George (Bailey) and JL (Langer) but also the wider Australian cricket high performance network.


“Throughout my cricket journey I have often been close to high performance and selection, so I feel well suited to and prepared for this role.”


He is currently General Manager of Hockey One, the new elite national competition for Australian hockey. He will step down from that position to join the NSP in mid-November prior to the home Vodafone Ashes series.
