Australia has appointed former all rounder Greg Chappell as country’s first full-time selector. This is the second major assignment for Chappell after his appointment as National Talent Manager by the Cricket Australia (CA).

Greg Chappell will join as a member of the four-member National Selection Panel, which is chaired by Andrew Hilditch. He will soon vacate his present job, head of Brisbane's Centre of Excellence (COE), to take up the new role.

The former coach of India had played 87 Tests and 74 ODIs in his career.

Chappell said he is looking forward to take up the challenging job.

"I am really excited by the challenge of this new role. From a talent management point of view, this will be an exciting period for Australian cricket,” he said.

"I have enjoyed the COE Head Coach role as I was able to work with a talented group of coaches and support staff to assist and develop the next generation of Australian cricketers. The new role dovetails beautifully for me as they will be the immediate future of Australian cricket," he added.

CA General Manager Michael Brown said he was delighted with Chappell`s life-long experience and his expertise in cricket would be highly solicited.

"We began a detailed review of our cricket pathway program more than four years ago and this appointment is the final step in that comprehensive process,” Mr Brown said.

"Greg will work closely with the State cricket talent development managers and with the national selectors in a system that now gives us a tightly integrated, national talent identification and management system across all Australian cricket," he added.
