Belinda Clark steps down as CA community chief
The former captain of Australia women’s team Belinda Clark announced the decision on Tuesday. This ends her 30 years of service to Cricket Australia.
Belinda Clark has stepped down from the position of community chief of Cricket Australia. She has been CA’s Executive General Manager of Community Cricket for the past two-and-half years. She has worked in cricket administration for more than 25 years.
Belinda’s long journey will officially come to an end on November 30, 2020. However, she will continue to serve as the director of the Local Organising Committee for the ICC T20 World Cup which is scheduled to be held in Australia in 2022.
The former cricketer has been a terrific player for Australia women’s team. She is Australia’s all-time leading ODI run-getter and the first cricketer to score a double hundred in ODIs.
Belinda felt that this is the right time to step down and also informed about her next target. She will look to develop leadership qualities in young girls.
“I have loved my time working for the sport and while this chapter is coming to a close after 20 years with CA, a further 6 years with CNSW and a long-standing member of ICC Women’s Committee, I am committed to finding new ways to give back to the game that has given me so much.”
“The journey has been exciting and rewarding because of the many amazing people I have worked with across the community, State/Territory Associations and CA. I am grateful for their support and am so proud of what we have achieved together.”
“My dream is to help young girls develop the confidence, skills and courage to step forward when leadership opportunities arise. This shift in my focus is timely as we navigate through significant global challenges – many of which need strong local and diverse voices to overcome,” Belinda told during the announcement.
