Collier pays tribute after Miller awarded OBE

Geoff Miller has been the ECB's National Selector for the last six years, having been on the selection panel since 2000

ECB Chief Executive David Collier today paid tribute to outgoing National Selector Geoff Miller after he was awarded an OBE in the New Year's honours list.

The former England off-spinner recently announced his intention to stand down as National Selector after six years in the post. The 61-year-old, who represented England in 34 Tests and 25 ODIs, had previously served as a member of the selection panel since 2000.

David Collier said: "It's marvellous to see Geoff recognised in this way for the outstanding service he has given to cricket over the past five decades - firstly as a player for Derbyshire, Essex and England, and more recently as our National Selector.

"Geoff can reflect with enormous pride on the magnificent contribution he has made to our game - in particular his role in helping deliver three successive Ashes wins and our first ever victory in an ICC global event - the World T20 tournament in the Caribbean in 2010.

"We congratulate Geoff on his achievement and I am sure that today's announcement will be welcomed by his many friends and colleagues within our First Class game as well as by current and former members of the England team."
