Sir Andrew Strauss has been appointed as the chair of the ECB's cricket committee and will replace Peter Wright who stepped down from the position after nine years in the role. The former England captain has assumed a new role with the ECB for the first time since stepping down from his post as director of England’s cricket in October 2018.
"It is a real pleasure to return to ECB in this new capacity. ECB and the whole cricket family have been a vital source of support over an extremely difficult year and it's really great to be back at Lord's, a place that has become a second home to me," Strauss said.
Strauss played a pivotal role in revolutionizing England's white-ball cricket, which eventually led to them winning the World Cup 2019. In his new role, he'll monitor cricket in all levels across England and Wales to develop the game.
