Ashley Giles has been confirmed as the ECB’s new Managing Director of England Men’s Cricket, and will take up the role in January ahead of the team’s tour of the Caribbean.
Giles, who played 54 Tests as a left-arm spinner, including the 2005 Ashes victory, is currently Sport Director at Warwickshire. He replaces Andrew Strauss, who stepped down in October for family reasons.
“I am delighted to be joining the ECB and shaping the future of England cricket throughout the men’s game,” said Giles.
“I am very grateful for the opportunity and excited about working with some talented people. The legacy left by Andrew Strauss has put the performance programme in a stable place. It is fundamental that I facilitate the great work currently being carried out, meet our objectives and help our sport achieve great things in the coming years both domestically and internationally.”
