Cricket Australia appoint new chairman of selectors

4:39 pm on 29 October 2011

John Inverarity has been appointed as Australian cricket's new chairman of selectors.

Inverarity will perform the role in a full-time capacity.

He replaces Andrew Hilditch, the part-time chairman who relinquished the post when Cricket Australia made the position a full-time job.

Inverarity played six Tests for Australia between 1968 and 1972 and coached English county clubs Warwickshire and Kent after a distinguished 23-year first-class career.

He'll take up the role in time to oversee selection for Australia's home Test series against New Zealand starting in December.
