Strauss handed ICC role



Andrew Strauss has joined the ICC's 16-member cricket committee

Andrew Strauss has joined the ICC's 16-member cricket committee

Former England captain Andrew Strauss has been appointed to a role with the International Cricket Council as part of a reshuffled cricket committee.

Strauss's appointment as one of two past players on the committee was supported unanimously by the ICC board and he has replaced Ian Bishop, who did not seek an extension to his term.

Former India captain Anil Kumble, 41, was the unanimous choice to replace Clive Lloyd as chairman of the committee.

The ICC's 16-member cricket committee meet twice a year to consult on playing matters and offer recommendations to the ICC.

ICC president Alan Isaac said: "In Anil Kumble we have a new chairman who has unquestioned experience, not only as a player with India but also as an administrator with Karnataka State Cricket Association as well.

"I am sure that he will carry on Clive's good work and bring, like Andrew Strauss, contemporary thinking to the committee and both understand clearly the issues facing the modern game."

Strauss, 35, retired from all forms of cricket in August.

He captained England in 50 of his 100 Test matches, winning two Ashes series and guiding his country to the top of the world rankings.
