Yorkshire Chairman Colin Graves has been appointed Deputy Chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) after an election was held to find a replacement for Dennis Amiss, who is standing down.
"The 41 members of the ECB, which comprises the 18 First-Class Counties, 21 County Boards, the MCC and the Minor Counties Cricket Association, have elected Mr Graves as Deputy Chairman until the ECB’s Annual General Meeting in 2016," a statement from the ECB confirmed.
"Mr Graves was nominated for the post last month after winning a ballot of the Chairmen of the First Class Counties and MCC.
"He succeeds Dennis Amiss who recently announced his intention to stand down from the post at the ECB’s forthcoming AGM in May."
