The hunt for Australia's new selector has begun after it was announced that Greg Chappell has opted to retire from his post on Thursday (September 26).
Chappell held the position of Cricket Australia's national talent manager and selector for the last nine years.
Former Australia wicket-keeper Graham Manou will take up the dual role of national talent and pathway manager while national selector will be announced in due course.
Cricket Australia chief Kevin Roberts paid tribute to the retiring 71-year-old, saying his passion and commitment to the game was 'exemplary'.
"His passion and commitment to the game are clear to anyone who has interacted with him and Australian cricket is all the stronger for his involvement. We wish him the very best in retirement and thank him for his exemplary service."
Roberts had recently unveiled his plans about the criterion for the selection of this post, stating that the new appointee would need to have plenty of experience of T20 cricket as Australia are hosting the World T20 next year.
