Greg Chappell to retire as CA selector

Cricket Australia has confirmed Greg Chappell will retire as national selector and talent manager after this year's Ashes series.

National selector and talent manager Greg Chappell will retire from his roles after this year's Ashes series, Cricket Australia (CA) has confirmed.

Chappell, having played 87 Tests for Australia, has been involved with Australian cricket's governing body for more than 30 years in various ways.


The 70-year-old, appointed in 2010 as CA's national talent manager, sits on the national selection panel with chairman Trevor Hohns and coach Justin Langer.

Both Hohns and Chappell, who had been a selector during the 1980s and again in 2010, were appointed to the panel after Australia's infamous loss to South Africa in Hobart in 2016 which led to Rod Marsh resigning as chairman.

The panel have put strong faith in youth over the past six months, blooding Kurtis Patterson, Marnus Labuschagne, Travis Head, Marcus Harris and Jhye Richardson.

One of cricket's most-respected figures, Chappell captained Australia during the late 1970s and early 1980s and served as India's national coach during the mid-2000s.
