Wasim Khan & Players React To His Leicestershire Appointment

Wasim Khan will take over as Chief Executive Officer at Leicestershire County Cricket Club in January and here both he and Leicestershire's Niall O'Brien give us their reaction to the news.

Wasim says taking the role at Grace Road felt right for him, at the right time in his career following nine years of work with Chance To Shine and The Cricket Foundation.

He adds this is a great chance for him to make a difference to a club that has struggled in recent years.

While a number of players have chosen to leave the club and play their cricket elsewhere, Irish international Niall O'Brien has stayed and he chats to us about how he sees the future for the club.

He says he is "delighted" with the appointment and looks forward to the fresh approach the new man will bring.
