Sir Andrew Strauss has been appointed as the chair of the England and Wales Cricket Board committee.
Strauss, who had been this week knighted in the resignation honours of Theresa May, gave up his position as manager of championships last year to spend some time Ruth.
The former captain has agreed to seat the ECB cricket committee, and has continued to work closely with all the organisation, in addition to establishing the Ruth Strauss Foundation.
He replaced Peter Wright, that has been in place for the last nine years.
“It is a true pleasure to return to ECB in this new capability. ECB and the whole cricket household are a very important source of support over a very difficult year and it is very amazing to be back at Lord’sa location that has become a second home for me,” Strauss said.
“I am extremely passionate about creating and developing cricket in England and Wales and that I look forward to working with my coworkers on the cricket committee to drive all aspects of the professional game, such as women’s, men’s and disability cricket.
“I’ve seen first-hand how this summer of cricket has motivated more people to fall in love with the game and I can’t wait to help build on its success.”
