ECB chief executive to step down in June and Clare Connor to take interim charge


England and Wales Cricket Board chief executive Tom Harrison will step down from the role in June.

Harrison was appointed in 2014 and oversaw the introduction of The Hundred, which started last year.

Former England captain and women’s cricket managing director Clare Connor will take over on an interim basis amid a turbulent period for English cricket.

Meanwhile, Brendon McCullum has taken over as men’s Test coach, with Ben Stokes replacing Joe Root as Test captain and Rob Key appointed managing director.
