Melbourne: Cricket Australia (CA) former chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns has joined the chorus with his successor Andrew Hilditch for restructuring the contract system to a more performance-based system that better reflects the importance of Test cricket.
Hohns, whose tenure as chairman of selectors coincided with Australia's domination, said CA should hand out fewer national contracts than the 25. The CA is obliged to give 25 contracts under its deal with the players' union.
"We had plenty of depth then, but I'm not sure that 25 is the right number. I must admit I was always saying that (as chairman), but that was the deal, that was done, and we had to work with it," Hons said.
