Warne enters MCC World Cricket Committee
Former Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne has been added to the MCC World Cricket Committee as a replacement for Rod Marsh.
His entry into the committee was confirmed on Wednesday, October 24th as Rod Marsh has resigned his post where he was in more than six years. Mike Gatting, the chairman of the committee announced it officially and presented the welcome note to the leggie.
“We’re delighted to welcome Shane on to the committee. Obviously, his profile in the world game is as big as they come and with his extensive experience, I am sure he will offer great insights into many different facets of the game.”
The chairman also thanked the former at the position for his services with the association. “I’d also like to pay tribute to Rod Marsh, who leaves the committee after six years. He has provided valuable contributions across a variety of areas and we thank him for his efforts.”
The former cricketer is delighted with his appointment and excited to work with the fellow people and developing the aspects of the game.
“It is an honour to have been asked to be a member of the MCC World Cricket committee. It is an extremely exciting time for cricket and I hope that I will have plenty to offer in discussion and debate. I look forward to contributing to the work of the committee,” Warne said about the appointment.
The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) is the guardian of the laws and spirit of the game. Its world cricket committee – established in 2006 – meets twice a year to discuss issues in the game.
