Selector (sport)

In some team sports, a selector is a member of a selection panel which chooses teams or individuals to represent a country or club or other representative team in sporting competitions.

For example, a selector in cricket is an administrative position involved in choosing players to represent a particular team in a match.[1] Or, in Gaelic games a selector (sometimes referred to by the Irish term roghnóir)[2] is a person who helps pick a team to represent a club or county team.[3]

Selectors may be past players,[4] but can also be current coaches. Current captains may also have an influence.
