ECB today announced that Middlesex Director of Cricket Angus Fraser has been appointed an England selector and will join National selector James Whitaker and England ODI and T20 Head Coach Ashley Giles on the selection panel.
Fraser played 46 Tests and 42 ODIs for England in an international career that spanned almost a decade as well as representing Middlesex between 1984 and 2002. The fast bowler claimed 886 First Class wickets and 392 List A wickets during his 18 year playing career. In 2008 Fraser was appointed Managing Director of Cricket at Middlesex and will continue in this role alongside his new responsibilities as a selector from 1 March.
National selector, James Whitaker, said: "I am delighted to welcome Angus Fraser on to the selection panel. Gus has been heavily involved in cricket for many years as a player and an administrator. He brings integrity and the wealth of knowledge that we will need as we look to identify the players across all formats who can thrive in the international environment."
