Former Sri Lankan Test captain Mahela Jayawardena has been appointed to the ICC Cricket Committee, adding even more cricketing experience to the list of eminent people already on the committee.

Mahela Jayawardena have played 1,161 international matches between them from 1996 to 2015, and he has been appointed for a three-year term. He will attend their first meeting at Lord’s on 31 May and 1 June, three weeks before the ICC Annual Conference takes place in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Jayawardena has been appointed as a past player representative and will be taking over from former Australia captain Mark Taylor, who has also completed his final three-year term.

Meanwhile, Anil Kumble has been re-appointed as the Chairman of the ICC Cricket Committee for a three-year term. The former India captain was appointed as the Chair in 2012 and will now continue to head the group until 2018.

The ICC Cricket Committee is representative of all stakeholders in the modern game, including players, umpires and the media. It is empowered to make recommendations on cricket playing issues to the Chief Executives’ Committee (CEC) and, if the matter is a policy matter, the ICC Board for approval.
