Rob Key was named England’s new Managing Director of Cricket on Sunday. He took over from Andrew Strauss who served as the interim managing director after England’s Ashes mauling.
The former England batter will take up the role on an immediate basis and also step down from his position as one of Sky Sports’ commentators. Key, who made his first-class debut in April 1998 against Middlesex, went on to register 19.419 runs at an average of 40.45. He also played 15 Tests for his country and notched up his best score of 221 against the West Indies at Lord’s in 2004.
“He’s got a very, very good cricket brain” 🧠🏏
