Sir Andrew Strauss Was appointed as the Seat of the England and Wales Cricket Board committee.
Strauss, who was this week knighted in Theresa May’s resignation honours, gave up his position as manager of championships last year to invest some time together along with his wife, Ruth.
The former captain has agreed to chair the ECB cricket , and has continued to work with all the organisation, in addition to establishing the Ruth Strauss Foundation.
He replaced Peter Wright, that has been in place.
“It is a true pleasure to come back to ECB in this new capacity. ECB and the entire cricket family are a very important source of support over a very difficult year and it’s very good to be back at Lord’s, a place that’s become a second home to me,” Strauss said.
“I am extremely enthusiastic about developing and rising championships in England and Wales and I look forward to working together with my coworkers on the cricket committee to constantly drive all parts of the professional sport, including women’s, men’s and disability cricket.
“I’ve seen firsthand how this summer cricket has motivated more people to fall in love with all the sport and I can’t wait to help build on its success.”
