A review must also go beyond structures and into addressing player issues. Currently the stance is that a player is free to opt out of a series if he is tired or jaded. That option must be taken away and given to someone who has responsibility for the team. It seems to be working with England and while systems cannot always be duplicated it is worth analysing why something is working. England, Australia and South Africa all seem to think that having the same captain in all three formats can be draining and so there must be some truth in it. And yet having different captains playing under each other in different formats is doomed to failure, leadership cannot be worn and discarded like clothes. A solution must be found, maybe the captain gives up a format.
