English cricket chiefs could tear up their selection strategy in response to the Ashes debacle – with one option the reinstatement of the national selector’s role following the sacking of Ed Smith in April.

Sportsmail understands there is disquiet among high-ranking ECB officials at the way in which power has been concentrated in the hands of head coach Chris Silverwood – a decision taken by Ashley Giles, the team’s managing director.

Nothing formal has been decided, but with Giles arriving in Sydney before next week’s fourth Test the question of how best to pick England teams will be near the top of the agenda.

A return to the role of national selector, or an extra voice in the selection process above the head coach, is among the options on the table.

The decision to add the chief selector’s role to Silverwood’s duties has not paid off, with a string of blunders compounded by the England players’ loss of faith in their head coach.

Silverwood has insisted he would not change any of his decisions, making it likelier that his two-year stint in the job will end once this series is over.
