Cricket Australia administrator Earl Eddings ended a 13-year spell with the association. Saying that he would not represent re-appointment as a director at the Annual General Meeting on Thursday.
The decision comes not exactly a month after Eddings, who took over as temporary director in 2018. CA Board asked him to serve a subsequent term.
Eddings came into the image when David Peever left in the wake of CA’s review. Following the ball-tampering scene at Cape Town in 2018.
CA declared that current chief Freudenstein will fill in as temporary chief. Until an extremely riable person is introduced.
Eddings bids Farewell:
“It has been an honour and a privilege to be able to serve the sport I love as a Cricket Australia director.” Eddings said in a statement according to cricket.com.au.
“In that time, and particularly during my time as Chair, we have navigated some of the sport’s greatest challenges. Including rebuilding the trust and reputation of Australian cricket after the Newlands incident and, more recently, the enormous impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on domestic and international cricket.”
“It is my sincere hope that following my resignation the State and Territory associations can unite and work together in the best interests of cricket. Allowing the focus to return to the sport ahead of the 2021-22 season.”
According to ”Sydney Morning Herald”, it was Queensland Cricket and Cricket New South Wales which desired a change.
CA said they pointed toward designating a super reliable person before the year’s end. “After a thorough cycle including input from State and Territory individuals”.
Freudenstein is right now a head of REA Group Limited, Coles Group Limited. He is also the Deputy Chancellor of The University of Sydney.
