Current cricketers, former cricketers and pundits alike were left scratching their heads after Cricket Australia's surprise inclusion of the 2002 Test Cricketer of the Year, Matthew Hayden, into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame before his 2001 predecessor Colin Miller.
Miller was only the second ever recipient of the Test Cricketer of the Year award at the Allan Border Medal ceremony which first began in 2000. The first recipient of the award, Glenn McGrath, has already been inducted into the Hall of Fame after a career which saw him take the most Test wickets by a non-spin bowler.
Likewise, Matthew Hayden's Test career was also record-breaking, scoring the highest ever score for an Australian test batsman with 380 and becoming the first Australian cricketer to score 1,000 Test runs in five separate calendar years.
The Hall of Fame now, however, has a notable gap between these two names as Colin Miller, who holds the record for the most Test wickets taken by an off-spinning medium pace bowler with bright blue hair, has been snubbed again.
"I don't know what this guy needs to do," said fellow inductee David Boon.
"I mean, not only was he dynamite for what? One or two tests? He's contributed so much to Australian cricket since his retirement, y'know, in his capacity as a golfing tour operator in Las Vegas."
In a rare show of support for Cricket Australia's actions, inaugural inductee Neil Harvey agreed with the decision to not include Miller.
"Did he play in 1948?! No, he bloody didn't, so there's no way he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. No-one should be in the Hall of Fame. It should be Bradman, me, and maybe Keith Miller, although his name's a bit too close for my liking."
When asked whether he thought the Hall of Fame was a meritocracy or simply politics, the player with the most Test Cricketer of the Year and ODI Cricketer of the Year awards, as well as the highest ever winning vote margin at the Allan Border Medal, Shane Watson, simply said "we'll see".
