Former England opener Alastair Cook and ex-West Indies team manager Ricky Skerritt were appointed as new members of MCC’s World Cricket Committee. They were sent official invitations, which they accepted. The committee involves taking decisions on important issues that concern the sport, as it also acts as an independent voice of opinions to cricket. The committee meets twice a year to discuss the issues. The next MCC World Cricket committee meeting will be hosted in Sri Lanka in March 2020.
