One man more than even Matthew Wade is sick of the constant conversation over the form batter missing out on Australian selection.
Wade was overlooked for the third time this summer for a new series when his name was left out of the one-day and T20 squad to India.
But Hobart Hurricanes coach Adam Griffith said all parties have to move on from the criticism of selectors.
“All we can be confident in what they’re doing,” he said.
“There has been enough written and said about it.
“I think our job is to be as supportive as much as we can. They’re in the best position to make [a call] so be it.
“Who are we to second guess a group who are in and around them every day?”
Wade tops the Sheffield Shield runscorers at the midseason break, accumulating 571 runs – 70 more than Test opener Marcus Harris and veteran Tom Cooper – at 63.44 that includes the one century and five fifties.
He has since scored six half-centuries from 13 Big Bash hits at an 45.42 average and a 147.30 strike following a nearly two-run-a ball 58 on Thursday night against the Melbourne Renegades.
But Griffith’s defence of Australia snubbing of Wade comes after the state mentor has been touted as the frontrunner to the vacated national bowling coach position.
Outgoing coach David Saker resigned from his role effective from Thursday.
The former English fast bowling coach had replaced Mowbray great Troy Cooley twice – once for England then Australia – proving the top end of Tasmania has a link to the national job should one-time South Launceston quick Griffith accept an offer.
“I think it’s a really interesting one at the moment about why he is not getting selected – I believe he’s the form batter in the country,” Griffith said.
“But it’s probably got to the stage now where for all of us what we want to see the Australian team getting better. So our job is to prepare our players the best way we can and if they want to pick them, they’ll pick them.”
