England appoints Luke Wright as Men's Team Selector

Former English all-rounder Luke Wright has been appointed as the selector for England Men’s National cricket team. Wright had recently announced his retirement from professional cricket after a dedicated 20-year service to Sussex and his appointment comes ahead of ECB’s enlightening faith in the veteran athlete.

Wright will assume responsibility for the prestigious position in March 2023. He is currently engaged in a crucial coaching role at Auckland with New Zealand Cricket (NZC).  Luke will closely align his responsibilities with the ECB Managing Director Rob Key, performance director Mo Bobat and player lead David Court to form a resilient squad for both England’s white-ball and red-ball cricket teams. He shall also be in deliberate consultation with the respective captains of the ODI, T-20I, and Test sides and the team management and support staff.

Notably, Rob Key has reintroduced the selectors position. Previously, former MD Ashley Giles had scrapped the position and assigned complete responsibilities to head coach Chris Silverwood. Luke Wright’s tenure will truly be one of the most prolific and monitored. England Cricket is currently soaring high with success as the side has successfully clinched the 50-over ODI World Cup and the shortest format T-20 World Cup.

Luke Wright bags a gleaming cricketing Career

Wright had one of the most glorious cricketing careers for England. In his decorated phase of 20 years, the astonishing all-rounder has scored over 20,000+ runs and claimed 300+ wickets. He has scored the most runs in the T20 Blast and has also been a part of England’s victorious T-20 World Cup side in 2010.

Addressing the media, Wright mentioned that he is truly honored and delighted to be a part of England’s selection committee. He added by saying that the side is already sailing through an exceptional phase and he will certainly try his best to build an iconic team along with giving a chance to all the deserving cricketers.

Ahead of the crucial ODI World Cup in 2023, Luke Wright will play an integral role to build England’s squad for the marquee event.
