Marsh new chairman of selectors

4:50 pm on 2 May 2014

Rod Marsh has been appointed Cricket Australia's new chairman of selectors.

Fellow former Test star Mark Waugh joins the four-man committee, alongside the recalled Trevor Hohns.

Marsh has been elevated to the role following the retirement of John Inverarity while former all-rounder Andy Bichel has also been replaced.

Australian coach Darren Lehmann retains his position on the selection committee.

And the flamboyant New Zealander Billy Bowden has returned to the elite panel of international umpires, in the only change for the 2014/2015 year, which starts in July.

He replaces compatriot Tony Hill, who's taken up a new role as New Zealand Cricket's umpiring coach.
