Former Australian captain Ian Chappell has fired back at Chris Lynn, after the explosive QLD batsman criticised a 'lack of communication' from Australian selectors.

Lynn was left out of the Aussie squad for the upcoming T20 series against Sri Lanka, and has been missing from the Australian setup for a while now.

And after criticising those in charge, Chappell put him right back in his place while speaking to Macquarie Sports Radio on Wednesday.

"What the hell do you need to hear from the selector?" he said.

"There are some delicate flowers and don’t want to hear the truth, that’s the problem. As a selector you have to be pretty blunt with people if you’re ringing them up.

Former WSC Australian captain Ian Chappell was playing his last season. Biographers have disserved Bradman in glossing over his years in officialdom. His strength and scruples over more than three decades were exemplary; the foremost master of the game became its staunchest servant.

"I’m not sure what sort of communication you need – if you’re a bowler not taking wickets or a batsman not making runs, that’s probably why you’re not in the team.

"I played in a different era where the selectors didn’t really communicate with you."

It is a reasonable spray not only at Lynn, but perhaps a number of Australian hopefuls or players who have been dropped from the national side.

While on the topic of selections, Chappell also ridiculed Cricket Australia for posting a job advertisement on Seek for the national selector's position.

“I didn’t realise that but it is reasonably important to have played the game, preferably at a high level," he said.

“Really they should have a shortlist in their minds. I am staggered that this is the way they are going about it."

But Cricket Australia CEO Kevin Roberts defended their decision to advertise such a high-ranking position on a job board, and said it was good to keep their options wide open.

“It’s really important that we make sure we give every relevant candidate an opportunity," he told Macquarie Sports Radio.

"We are speaking directly to a number of candidates in the game, but we want to make sure we have all bases covered. Putting an ad on Seek doesn’t break the bank, but there might be someone who might be suitable for the rule.

"We assume the person is going to come from our own network, but we don’t want to blindly assume that and cut off other avenues."

Australia is right behind Maxwell: Lynn .
Chris Lynn says 25 million Australians would be united in their support of Glenn Maxwell, after he took a break from cricket to deal with his mental health.Lynn said he felt a shiver go down his spine when he heard Maxwell was stepping away from the game and was set to miss the rest of the Twenty20 series to manage his health.
