PERTH (AFP) - Former captain Steve Waugh says a lack of stability within the side is contributing significantly to the current Australian cricket teams woes. Down 1-0 after the first two Tests in the Ashes series against England, the once all-conquering Australian Test team has not tasted victory for five matches. Waugh, who lost just nine of his 57 Tests as Australian captain, believes the national selectors have made too many changes to the team over the last 18 months and not shown enough faith in young players. He recalled the start of his own career, when he battled in a young side struggling for wins, but capitalised on the faith shown by the selectors to blossom into a champion player in a champion team. What the selectors have got to do, which they did back then, is have belief in the younger players they pick and say 'you are there, we believe in you, we think you are the future of Australian cricket and you are going to have a bit of leeway, he said.
