ICC committee role for Strauss
Former England captain Andrew Strauss has been elected to the ICC’s cricket committee.
Strauss brought an end to his distinguished playing career in August and replaces Ian Bishop, who chose not to seek an extension to his term.
Anil Kumble, third in the all-time list of Test wicket-takers, will succeed Clive Lloyd as the new chairman of the committee, while ex-Australia skipper Mark Taylor and statistician David Kendix have gained a further term.
ICC president Alan Isaac said: “I would like to thank Clive Lloyd for his chairmanship of the ICC Cricket Committee and his tireless contribution to the game.
"The ICC board were united in their admiration for his work as chairman. We also thank Ian Bishop for his contribution during his term as well.
"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.
"I am sure that he will carry on Clive's good work and bring, like Andrew Strauss, contemporary thinking to the committee.
"Both understand clearly the issues facing the modern game.”
