Mark Taylor becomes latest Cricket Australia figure to stand down following Longstaff Review
November 05, 2018 14:11:13
Former Australian captain Mark Taylor has resigned as a director of Cricket Australia (CA).
The longest serving current member of the CA board, Taylor said the time had come for him to decide whether to “step up or step off” in the wake of the hard-hitting Longstaff Review into the culture of the game and the organisation.
“I had an opportunity at this time to put my name forward as a chairman, or to step off,” he said.
“That’s where I got to, and I think I’ve made the right move in the interests of Australian cricket to step off and give hopefully a former player an opportunity to add some fresh ideas to this role as a director of Cricket Australia.”
His resignation follows that of CA’s former chairman David Peever last week.
More to come.
