Hughes has to miss out.

MERV HUGHES has lost his job as an Australia selector just weeks before the start of the Ashes.

Former paceman Hughes was the man to miss out with Greg Chappell joining the four-man board alongside David Boon, Jamie Cox and chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch.

"After feedback from NSP chairman Andrew Hilditch, the board unanimously decided that David Boon, Jamie Cox and Greg Chappell were the best people to join him on the four-member NSP," Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said.

"Andrew was clear in his assessment that Merv had been a good selector and a strong contributor around the selection table, but that Cox, Boon and Chappell were the better options to continue on the NSP.

"Unfortunately this means that Merv is no longer a member of the NSP.

Merv has provided valuable input and expertise to the NSP during the past five years and Cricket Australia thanks him for his contribution during this time."
