SYDNEY: Australian cricket great Mark Waugh on Tuesday quit as a national selector to take up a television commentary role as broadcasters jockey for top talent after a new rights deal was agreed.

Waugh will not renew his contract when it expires on Aug 31 but will remain on the panel for the upcoming Australian tours of England and Zimbabwe.

“Working alongside my fellow selectors, the coaching staff and players over the past four years has been a privilege, and I’m proud of the achievements of the Australian teams across all formats in this time,” he said.
