Cricket Australia has contradicted claims by Nine Network managing director Jeffrey Browne that the TV station would influence player selection for games broadcast by them.

Browne told a business lunch that Nine would consult with CA about the controversial rotation policy that means not all of the best players appear in all games. 

But CA chief executive James Sutherland said decisions about selection remain the sole domain of his national selection panel.

"Cricket has a long-standing and successful relationship with the Nine Network but team selections and scheduling are matters for Cricket Australia," he said in a statement.

"The National Selection Panel selects the Australian teams.

"With the volume of international cricket being played, it will continue to be necessary for us to manage player workloads appropriately."

"We'll continue to consult with our broadcasters on scheduling issues."

"It's something we have always done.”

"We have a common goal with our broadcast partners to maximise the number of fans watching and enjoying cricket.”
