What he said:
"We are 100,000 per cent behind Australia being the best cricket team in the world.”
Tim Nielsen welcomes the changes in Cricket Australia’s structure. The shake-up will force current national coach Nielsen to reapply for his position, if he wants it.
“I think the most important thing is it’s been an exhaustive look at how we’re going to get Australian cricket back to where it wants to be, number one in all forms of the game.”
"You don’t do that by skirting around the edges and having nice, feel-good looks at things and hoping you’re going to fix things up by doing them the same way.”
What he really meant:
“The positive is that I can reapply for my position whereas Greg (Chappell) got the boot and Andrew (Hilditch) saves face by claiming he does not want a full-time role. Also, I get to choose the players from now on.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“No, I didn’t know that England are No. 1 now. None of us did. ”
