Former captain George Bailey has been appointed as the new chairman of Australia’s national selection panel. Bailey replaces Trevor Hones. Cricket Australia gave this information on Sunday. Bailey will be responsible for the T20 World Cup in Oman this year. The selection committee, led by him, selects the team for the home Ashes series and the subcontinent tour. Australia recently suffered a T20 series defeat to the West Indies. However, the team managed to win the ODI series.

“I want to thank Trevor for his amazing work that has contributed to the success of Australian cricket for a long time,” Bailey said in a statement to Cricket Australia. He also helped me as a player and as a leader. Ben Oliver, interim general manager of Cricket Australia’s national teams, said the body was on the fence and the search for the third member of the committee to join head coach Justin Langer. Australia’s performance in recent times has not been particularly impressive. Under the leadership of Aaron Finch, the Kangaroo team was defeated by the West Indies 4-1 in the T20 series.
