The ECB has announced that Middlesex's director of cricket, Angus Fraser, has been appointed as an England selector. He will join the national selector James Whitaker and England's ODI and T20 Head Coach Ashley Giles on the selection panel.

Fraser played 46 Tests and 42 ODIs for England in an international career that spanned almost a decade as well as representing Middlesex between 1984 and 2002. He will continue in his Middlesex role alongside his new responsibilities as a selector, which begin on March 1.

Whitaker, said: "I am delighted to welcome Angus Fraser on to the selection panel. Gus has been heavily involved in cricket for many years as a player and an administrator. He brings integrity and the wealth of knowledge that we will need as we look to identify the players across all formats who can thrive in the international environment."
