Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer has today been confirmed as the Associate representative on the ICC Cricket Committee.
Coezter replaces Ireland’s Kevin O’Brien as the Associate Members representative (Ireland is now a Full Member, which means O’Brien has become ineligible).
Along with Mike Hesson and Belinda Clarke, the three have been appointed to the committee for an initial three-year term each.
The three will take up their roles at next week’s annual meeting in Mumbai, which will take place on 29 and 29 May.
The ICC Cricket Committee is representative of all stakeholders in the modern game, including players, umpires and the media. It is empowered to make recommendations on cricket playing issues to the Chief Executives’ Committee (CEC) and, if the matter is a policy matter, the ICC Board for approval.
On the news Coetzer said, “It’s a great honour to be able to represent the Associate nations in world cricket and to be elected amongst such highly influential individuals and ambassadors of the game.
I’m looking forward representing the players voice around the world. I can’t wait to get stuck into the role.”
