Kevin Roberts named new CEO of Cricket Australia
Kevin Roberts has been named the new chief executive officer of Cricket Australia, replacing James Sutherland, who quit in June after an embarrassing ball-tampering scandal involving the country's test team.
Cricket Australia said Wednesday that Roberts, the group's chief operating officer and a former domestic first-class cricketer, will take over for Sutherland after the annual general meeting on Oct. 25.
Sutherland was appointed in 2001 to replace Malcolm Speed.
In March, captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and opening batsman Cameron Bancroft were caught up in a plot to tamper with the match ball during the third test against South Africa in Cape Town.
