Melanie Jones Elected As Cricket Australia’s Administrator

Melanie Jones, the former Australia cricketer, was appointed as Cricket Australia’s administrator, becoming the first woman to be elected to the board as a state candidate.

Jones, who was awarded the order of Australia Medal earlier in 2019 for services to cricket and the community, comes as an addition to the panel

Jones said, “I’m excited to have this opportunity to work with the Board to strengthen cricket’s bond with the community and ensure a healthy and sustainable future for the next generations.”

She added, “I have much admiration for the work that has been undertaken over the past 18 months, in particular, an incredibly challenging time for cricket, and a testament to its place in the hearts of Australians.”

Jones made her debut for Australia in 1997 and was part of the team in two World Cup triumphs. Her playing career spanned 16 years, including domestic cricket, until 2011, after which she is a familiar face on commentary box.

CA Chair Earl Eddings said, “Mel has been an active and inspiring part of the cricket fabric for many years, and we are privileged to have her join the Board. Australian Cricket has been undergoing significant change over the past two years and I’ve no doubt Mel’s experience on and off the field will be an asset to the team as we move into our next phase.

He added, “Mel’s commitment to the game and her advocacy, particularly for women in sport, will only bolster our continued focus on advancing cricket to be the number one sport for women and girls.”

Besides being an amateur travel blogger, I am an out-and-out cricket buff, breathing this game 24x7. I endlessly surf a channel in hope that I get some riveting action of this game
