Former Australia women’s captain Belinda Clark, New Zealand coach Mike Hesson and Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer have been appointed to the ICC Cricket Committee – for a three-year team each – which will convene in Mumbai on May 28 and 29. Among the topics for discussion at the annual meeting are the playing conditions for the Test Championship in 2019, the scrapping of the toss and day-night Tests.
Clark has replaced Clare Connor, who completed her third three-year term on the committee. Hesson replaced Darren Lehmann, who was declared ineligible after he resigned as Australia’s coach following the Test series against South Africa. Coetzer was brought in for Kevin O’Brien as the Associate Members representative. O’Brien was ineligible after Ireland achieved Full Member status. Incidentally, O’Brien was the Man of the Match for his 118 against Pakistan in Ireland’s first Test, earlier this month.
