Mahela, Rahul in ICC cricket committee
Batting greats Rahul Dravid and Mahela Jayawardene joined the ICC's cricket committee Friday in the first major appointments at the game's governing body since India's Shashank Manohar was elected chairman.
Dravid and Jayawardene, two of the biggest run-scorers of all-time, will join the likes of Australian coach Darren Lehman and umpire Richard Kettleborough on a body which has a crucial say in playing matters.
The ICC said Jayawardene and Dravid had joined the committee after Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara and former Indian Laxman spinner Sivaramakrishnan completed their three-year terms.
Anil Kumble, another former India leg-spinner, will remain as chair of the committee after being re-elected for a second stint, the ICC added.
