The Australian cricket selectors are a group of men appointed by Cricket Australia to be responsible for team selections for each of the Australian national sides in every form of cricket.

Current members as at May 2014 are: Rod Marsh (Chairman), Andy Bichel, Mark Waugh and Trevor Hohns.[1]

Australia's selection panel was changed in 2011, following the Argus review. It was decided to appoint a five man panel, consisting of the coach, captain, a full-time selector, and two part-time ones.[2] Andrew Hilditch and Greg Chappell were axed as Australian selectors. Australia's captain Michael Clarke became a selector along with John Inverarity. Rod Marsh and Andy Bichel were appointed part timers.[3]

In earlier seasons, there would be a selection panel appointed by the Australian Cricket Board which would pick players for home games and overseas tours. However, on the overseas tours selections would be done by a committee consisting of the captain, vice-captain and manager.
