Australia are on the hunt for a new national selector after Greg Chappell announced his retirement from the game on Thursday.
The former Australian skipper, who played 87 Tests and 74 one-day inter-nationals, had been Cricket Australia’s national talent manager for the past nine years as well as a selector.
Former Test wicketkeeper Graham Manou will take over an expanded role of national talent and pathway manager, with a replacement selector to be named at a later date.
The current panel consists of Chappell, chairman Trevor Hohns and coach Justin Langer.
Cricket Australia chief Kevin Roberts paid tribute to the 71-year-old for his “exemplary service” to the game.
“Greg has had a profound and positive impact on cricket for generations,” he said.
“His passion and commitment to the game are clear to anyone who has in-teracted with him and Australian cricket is all the stronger for his involve-ment.”
Roberts had suggested earlier this month that any new appointee would need to have particular experience of Twenty20 cricket with Australia host-ing the World Cup next year.
