Three of Australia's most successful captains will investigate the present national team's recent decline in test form.

Allan Border, Mark Taylor and Steve Waugh were announced on Thursday as members of a team performance review panel commissioned by Cricket Australia and chaired by Don Argus, the former chairman of mining giant BHP Billiton.

The review was sparked by Australia's 3-1 Ashes series loss to England and its slump from No.1 to fifth in the world test rankings.

The panel will talk with current Australian team members, coaching staff and selectors, as well as the state cricket boards. It may also look into the setups of Australia's cricketing rivals, or other sports in Australia.
