The England Cricket Board (ECB) announced that former county player Mick Newell is set to become an England selector following Ashley Giles’ decision to step down from the four-man panel.

According to the official ICC website, Newell will join the panel with immediate effect, and work alongside National Selector James Whitaker, Head Coach Peter Moores and Angus Fraser.

ECB’s National Selector James Whitaker said, “Ashley Giles has informed ECB that he intends to step down from the panel and I would like to thank him for all his hard work and dedication to the England cause over the past six years both as a selector, and more recently as our limited-overs coach.”

He went on to welcome Newell by saying, “We welcome Mick to the panel and his passion, cricketing knowledge and in-depth understanding of our county game will be invaluable as we seek to identify potential international talent and develop outstanding England teams across all three formats of the game.”

Newell had previously led Nottinghamshire’s successful domestic one-day campaign last season, and has also been at the helm of his County for two Championship title wins. The 49-year-old has also served as a coach on winter tours by the England Lions and England Under-19 teams in the past.

On his appointment, Newell said, “It’s a tremendous privilege and a great honour to be invited to join the England selection panel and I am really looking forward to working more closely with James, Peter and Angus. I would also like to thank Nottinghamshire CCC for their support in allowing me to take on this role and play a part in shaping the future direction of the England team.”
